What is the place of Jewish community in Ukrainian society? Which myths did it manage to overcome? What are the myths that still establish framework for Ukrainian-Jewish relations? How can we try to understand Jewish history through modern representatives of the nation? The photographs of an American photographer and researcher of East European Jews Jason Francisco offered answers to these and other questions.
