Chair: François Guesnet

UCL Institute for Jewish Studies, Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies


Based on nearly two decades of research in Odesa, Ukraine and her current research with Ukrainian Jewish refugees in Germany and other parts of Europe, Dr. Marina Sapritsky-Nahum, a visiting fellow in the anthropology department at the University College London, (UCL) and The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), will be discussing the current developments of Ukrainian Jewry home and abroad. The 2022 full scale Russian invasion of Ukraine has had a great effect on Jewish life in Ukraine. This talk will address the ways Ukrainian Jewish communities have been altered and fragmented and the creative and inspiring responses of members and leadership amid challenging conditions of war and refuge.
