Review Quotes
"... a useful introduction to a very complex topic, but it also highlights the work remaining for scholars in Ukraine and elsewhere and the continuing need for further international scholarly collaboration." -- Sean Martin, Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland, Ohio, The Russian Review, Vol. 68.3 July 2009
"Bitter memories and the specter of the Holocaust continue to haunt Jewish-Ukrainian relations.... Only a full admission of the disturbing facts of the past and a full respect for the perpetuation of the memory of the former Jewish communities may at least partly exorcise the guilt and open a new page [in their] mutual relations. Perhaps this book may serve as one of the guiding lights in this direction." -- Jerusalem Post
"Deserving special note are Timothy Snyder's chapter on Volhynian Jewry for its elegantand diligent use of both general and Jewish sources; and Karel C. Berkhoff 's sensitiveanalysis of the various testimonies of Dina Pronicheva, who survived the nightmarishBabi Yar massacre. Omer Bar-Tov concludes the book with an overview of how the Jewishfacets of Eastern Galicia's history are systematically ignored and erased by Ukrainians inwhose historical consciousness there is no room for how Jews lived and were murderedin a region that was a center of Jewish culture and religion..." -- Jewish Book World, Summer 5769/2009
