Meeting Ukraine and Belarus: epicenters of the massacres of 1941

These two Soviet republics are at the heart of the radicalization and spiral of violence that tore the “lands of blood” in the wake of Operation Barbarossa. In the front lines of the confrontation between the Wehrmacht and the Red Army, their towns and villages populated by Jews were decimated by the Nazi policy of extermination. The vast majority fell under the bullets of the Einsatzgruppen. The round table will present these mass crimes and discuss the reaction of the local population.

In the presence of Delphine Bechtel, Senior Lecturer in Germanic Studies at the University of Paris-Sorbonne, Karel Berkhoff, historian, Senior Researcher, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies (NIOD), Masha Cerovic, Senior Lecturer at the Centre d’études des mondes Russe, Caucasien & centre-européen, Cercec, (EHESS/CNRS), and Thomas Chopard, historian, CNRS post-doctoral student.

Moderated by Jean-Yves Potel, writer and academic.
