A round-table introducing the rich field of Jewish heritage in Ukraine: buildings, monuments, museums, artefacts, and library treasures.

About this event

Researchers, teachers and library/museum professionals working in the Ukraine will join this hybrid event remotely to offer an introduction to the rich field of Jewish material heritage in Ukraine. Much of this vast treasure trove is acutely endangered by the present war. Come and hear about the amazing work by our Jewish Studies colleagues working under conditions of war to safeguard and document Jewish heritage.

The round-table is organised jointly by the British and Irish Association of Jewish Studies (BIAJS) and the Jewish Historical Society of England (JHSE) and will take place during this year’s BIAJS conference at King’s College London.

When registering, you will be able to choose between two options:

1) attendance in person of the event and the following conference reception (registration closes on Tuesday 5 July, 5pm). Location: King’s College London, Safra Lecture Theatre (Ground Floor, King’s Building, Strand Campus)

2) attendance online only (registration closes on Monday 11 July, 5pm).
