NEW BOOKS

Zhabotinsky V. - Works. - Odessa, 2001. - V.1, 2.

Vladimir (Zeev) Zhabotinsky published his two-volume edition of publicistic and literary works. For a long time Zhabotinsky was called a Zionist in our country. All his literary heritage was consigned to oblivion. His novel "Five" - one of the best works about Odessa - suffered the same fate. For the first time the book was published in Paris in the 1930s, and today this book at last saw the world in the author's native land.


Archival Jewish Studies of Russia, Ukraine, and Byelorussia: Materials for a Literature Index / Compiled by Y.Melamed. - SPb., 2001. - 104 p.

The book is a research of a Ukrainian literary critic Yefim Melamed. The research is an analysis of the materials contained in the archives in many CIS countries. It also includes a bibliography of documentary and source study publications.

Such a detailed description of archival Jewish materials is unique, and therefore is recommended for specialists in Jewish history and culture.


Live History. Veterans Recollect Their War Youth / Compiled by I.Gofman - Poltava: Kamelot, 2000. - 117 p.

The book is dedicated to the participation of Jews in war battles during World War II. Veterans remember the Holocaust events in different corners of Ukraine, the fate of ghetto prisoners, battles for Ukrainian cities. The book is recommended to everyone interested in Jewish history.


Vigderhaus D. Babiy Yar of Artemovsk. - Artemovsk, 2000. - 56 p.

The collection of articles was published by the Dnepropetrovsk center "Tkuma". The German army occupied Artemovsk on October 31, 1941. On January 7, 1942 announcements, obliging Jews to gather in the former railway NKVD, were pasted all around the city. On the night of January 11 some of the people were taken to sand pits in mobile gas chambers, others were immured alive in alabaster quarries. More than three thousand Jews were then executed. Some of the Jews were sheltered by Artemovsk citizens. Those heroes are all named in the book.

The publication also contains a passional of some of the perished.


Jews of Nezhyn. - Nezhyn: Series "Nezhyn Antiquity", 2001. - 180 p.

The book contains materials about the development of Jewish education of Nezhyn from 1861 to 1917, a Jewish public school, the role of Jews in the revolutionary movement, the "Beilis' case", pogroms, and the Nazi genocide in the city.

The originality of the book is not so much in the unification of materials about Judaism, history, famous Jews, as the fact that it was edited jointly by Jewish organizations and "Prosvita". Unfortunately, its Kiev, Kharkov and Chernigov departments at times display xenophobia. The Nezhyn Shevchenko Association of Ukrainian Language can undoubtedly be an example for "Prosvita" departments in reaching interethnic consent in Ukraine.
