Tikkun Olam: The Response of JCC Krakow to the Ukrainian Crisis

This special Talking Memory program, marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, will focus on the experiences Jewish refugees in Soviet Ukraine after the Holocaust and Ukrainian refugees today.

Dr. Marta Havryshko will explore sexual violence during the Holocaust from the point of view of its immediate victims and witnesses —Jewish women and men who survived the Holocaust and became witnesses in postwar trials in Soviet Ukraine (the 1940s-1980s). She will also share her experiences as a refugee who had to leave Ukraine as a result of the Russian invasion in February 2022.

Jonathan Ornstein will share the incredible story of how JCC Krakow has been taking in refugees from Ukraine since the Russian invasion and is directly helping and supporting over one hundred and fifty thousand Ukrainians over the last eight months.

Chuck Fishman will share a photographic slice of the Ukrainian refugee experience in Poland, as seen, felt and interpreted by a ripened American photographer.
