Gennady Kostyrchenko - "Black Years in Jewish Consciousness as a Symbiosis of History and Mythology"
Gennady Kostyrchenko, the author of Out of the Red Shadows: Anti-Semitism in Stalin's Russia (1995), has been working on this project since 1997. His denial of the dominant at the time theory about Stalin’s preparation of a mass deportation of Jews became a sensation in scholarly circles and spurred a long-lasting polemic in the field of Eastern European Jewish history. His talk will also discuss the convoluted history of the still-born project of the creation of a Jewish Soviet Republic in Crimea (1944).
Co-sponsored by the Department of History, the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, and the Centre for Jewish Studies.
