The monograph is devoted to the problem of the perception of the Holocaust in Ukraine in the public discussions of the second half of the 20th – the beginning of the 21st century. It reveals and analyzes the plots of the Holocaust in works of art, journalism, and historiography of the late Soviet and post-Soviet era, elucidates the prerequisites for its perception both in the USSR and in independent Ukraine, and also demonstrates the vision of the Holocaust problem of the Soviet dissident intelligentsia and Ukrainian post-Soviet liberal-democratic intellectuals. The author traced the evolution of Ukrainian public opinion through the prism of the perception of the Holocaust. Studying the most popular Western and Ukrainian diaspora periodicals made it possible to depict the ideas about the genocide of the Jews of Ukraine, common in the circles of the Western intelligentsia and Ukrainian emigration, and to investigate the influence of Western and diaspora public opinion on the attitude of Ukrainian post-Soviet society to the Holocaust. The study also includes a description of the process of learning about the Holocaust problem in Ukraine and an analysis of key academic discussions around it.
