Its authors review Jewish studies in philately, analyze national awareness in multicultural space, ethnopolicy and emigration processes in Ukraine. The chapter includes articles on the Catholic Church's attitude towards Jews, Sh.Dubnov's concept of national self-awareness, Bashevis-Zinger's novels, Kobbal's and Vedant's ideas, attempts of the Holocaust tragedy revision and Jewish perception principles.
