Input: Events and figures
Ukraine was one of the major arenas of the Second World War and a place where the racist policy of extermination of the German national socialist regime reached a new dimension. This panel will provide an overview of the Holocaust in Ukraine. What was the basis for determining the number of victims, and what geographical areas do these figures refer to? Who carried out the murders, and what was the share of non-German perpetrators? Who are the non-Jewish victim groups, and how is information transmitted to and from them?

Input: After the war and remembrance during real socialism
How did the state deal with the place of Babyn Jar and the victims after 1944/45? What civic forms of remembrance existed? When did remembrance begin of Jews as a victim group? And are Jews also commemorated as partisans and resistance fighters or only as victims?
