Although Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, German, Israeli, and American archives hold copious documentation, and memoirs and research work on the subject continues to grow, even specialists have trouble understanding the development of the pogroms that shook Galicia, Volhynia, Bukovina, and Right-bank Ukarine in the first weeks after the German troops entered Ukraine in the summer of 1941. Based on archival documents, testimonies, memoirs, photographs, and documentary film, Carynnyk spoke of one of the bloodiest disasters perpetrated upon the Jews of Ukraine – the Zolochiv pogrom of July 3-4, 1941.

The lecture was part of the Second Summer School of Jewish History and Culture in East-Central Europe.
