A solemn ceremony dedicated to the International Holocaust Remembrance Day was held on January 27 at Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine”. This day in 1945, the troops of the 1st Ukrainian Front liberated the prisoners of the largest death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, in Auschwitz, Poland, which became a terrible symbol of the Holocaust and Nazi crimes in World War II.

On January 27, on the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the premiere of the documentary “Holocaust. Documented crime” took place on the public TV channel “UA: Pershiy”. The filming took place in Kyiv, Odesa and Dnipro, in particular at Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine”.

With grief and sorrow, we announce the loss of a close friend of Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine” and “Tkuma” Institute Mykhailo Yakhko (1957–2020). He was the inspiration for the creation of the exhibition “Clocks that saw the past” in our Museum. Mykhailo was the curator of this department of the Museum, selflessly and persistently worked on its design and never refused to help or consult our colleagues.

The staff of “Tkuma” Institute and Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine” with unspeakable sadness announces the death of Anatolii Pleskachevskyi – our friend, director of the “Khesed Menakhem” Charitable Foundation for the Elderly people, member of the Dnipro Jewish Community, Honored social worker of Ukraine.
