Publisher: The Carl Beck Papers. In this fascinating book, Grzegorz In this fascinating book, Grzegorz Rossolinski-Liebe illuminates the life of a mythologized personality and scrutinizes the history of the most violent twentieth-century Ukrainian nationalist movement: the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and its Ukrainian Insurgent Army. Elucidating the circumstances in which Bandera and his movement emerged and functioned, Rossolinski-Liebe explains how fascism and racism impacted on Ukrainian revolutionary and genocidal nationalism.
The author brings to light some of the darkest elements of modern Ukrainian history and demonstrates its complexity, paying special attention to the Soviet terror in Ukraine and the entanglement between Ukrainian, Jewish, Polish, Russian, German, and Soviet history. The monograph also charts the creation and growth of the Bandera cult before the Second World War, its vivid revivals during the Cold War among the Ukrainian diaspora, and in Bandera's native eastern Galicia after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

While in central and eastern Ukraine a significant percentage of the Jewish population managed to survive the occupation, in its western territories While in central and eastern Ukraine a significant percentage of the Jewish population managed to survive the occupation, in its western territories Volhynia and Eastern Galicia more than 90 percent of the Jews were murdered.
The difference between western Ukraine on the one hand central and eastern Ukraine on the other hand was nationalism. Western Ukraine was the home of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists which in the s and s transformed into the main Ukrainian fascist movement and in formed the Ukrainian Insurgent Army UPA. Even though the Germans prevented the OUN from establishing a fascist state modelled on the Independent State of Croatia governed by the Ustashas and arrested its commanders, the OUN sent its members to serve in the police and helped a small number of German functionaries with the ghettoization, appropriation of Jewish property, and extermination of the Jews.
The extermination of the Jews was one of the main political goals of the OUN which used the German-controlled police to achieve it. View on www1. Verflochtene Geschichten.

Dennoch wurde er in der Ukraine lange ebenso Deshalb war bis vor Kurzem auch kaum bekannt, wie der italienische Faschismus und der deutsche Nationalsozialismus in der Ukraine rezipiert wurden und ob sich dort ein genuiner Faschismus ausgebildet hat.
Ebenso ist weitgehend unbekannt geblieben, welche Rolle der Faschismus bei der Kollaboration mit den Nationalsozialisten, beim Holocaust und anderen Formen der Massengewalt gespielt hat. Over one and a half million Ukrainian Jews fell victim to the Holocaust between the summer of and the spring of The majority of them were shot near their homes or ghettos by German Kommandos and local collaborators. Many Ukrainians were witnesses to this genocide or participated in the persecution and murder of their Jewish neighbors. Nonetheless, in the collective memory of the Ukrainian diaspora, which has produced an extensive body of literature, the Holocaust remained almost completely in the dark, unmentioned.
Because of the inaccessibility of Soviet archives as well as a tendency among historians to concentrate on official records, this lapse in memory has not become a subject of historical research until recently. At the same time, Holocaust research focused mainly on German perpetrators and frequently refused to take notice of reports and memoirs left by survivors because of their allegedly disputed use within the historical discipline. The published works of historians such as Philip Friedman, Shmuel Spector, and Eliyahu Yones, who were themselves Holocaust survivors and who did not neglect non-German perpetrators, received little attention from German and North American specialists of Ukrainian history and scholars of National Socialism.
Only in recent years has a scholarly debate turned its attention to this blind spot in the memory of the Ukrainian diaspora and to the narrative that was constructed by it.

Die ukrainische Diaspora und der Genozid an den Juden more. In the first half of , tens of thousand Ukrainians left their country together with the withdrawing German occupiers in order to avoid confrontation with the approaching Red Army and the Soviet authorities.
Between the summer of Between the summer of and their time of departure, all of these Ukrainians had had some kind of experience with the Holocaust, either as observers, as rescuers or as perpetrators. In their newspapers and numerous memoirs they frequently described and discussed the Second World War, but they either did not mention the Holocaust at all or portrayed it as a crime committed only by the Nazis and a small group of unpatriotic Ukrainians. On the contrary, some of these actors, in particular the members of the OUN and the partisans of the UPA, were commemorated as freedom fighters and national heroes.
Concentrating on western Ukraine, this article explores how, during the Cold War, the Ukrainian Diaspora forgot the annihilation of the Jews, turned Holocaust perpetrators and war criminals into heroes of Ukraine, and argued that survivors from eastern Galicia and Volhynia, who mentioned Ukrainians as perpetrators, were Soviet propagandists and Jewish chauvinists.

Celebrating Fascism and War Criminality in Edmonton. Bis heute wird dies als ein wichtiger Beitrag zum kanadischen Multikulturalismus verstanden und jede Kritik am neofaschistischen und antisemitischen Kult als anti-ukrainisch und chauvinistisch abgewiesen. Certain factions of Ukrainian diaspora organized memorial celebrations in Canadian cities including Edmonton, as well as in several other countries outside of the Soviet Union. Initially, these celebrations took place annually, but eventually they were held every five years. They consisted of a memorial service panakhida and a political-ideological-cultural component during which several vocal activists of Ukrainian nationalism did readings of heroic and patriotic poems or sang OUN and UPA songs.
At these celebrations, Bandera was commemorated as a great Ukrainian hero and martyr who had died for Ukraine. The climate of the Cold War and the politics of multiculturalism that Canada had adopted in facilitated the radical nationalist and neo-fascist elements of the Ukrainian diaspora to claim that the Bandera cult and myth were authentic and very natural components of the Ukrainian culture and identity.
Thus the cult and myth have been interpreted as being important contributions to the Canadian policy of multiculturalism. Every kind of critique of this neo-fascist and anti-Semitic cult were repelled as being anti-Ukrainian and chauvinistic attacks against the Ukrainian community and the Ukrainian nation.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union the archives of the former republics and satellite states of this multiethnic empire were opened. This allowed historians to investigate the history of nationalist and radical right organisations This allowed historians to investigate the history of nationalist and radical right organisations and armies that, during the Second World War, had been involved in the Holocaust and other atrocities. Among them was the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists.
For a long time the history of these movements was unknown or distorted by Soviet propaganda and propagandist publications written during the Cold War by veterans of these movements living in the West and cooperating with Western intelligence services. Post-Soviet historical discourses were shaped not only by journalists or political activists, but also by radical right historians. These discourses impacted as well on historians who in general were critical of the post-Soviet rehabilitation of nationalism, war criminality or East Central European fascism.
Concentrating on Ukrainian and Polish history, this article explores how the radical right historical discourses appeared in the post-Soviet space, what types of historians were involved in them and what kinds of distortions and obfuscations have predominated. Between and , Soviet censorship was lifted and Polish-Ukrainian historical conferences about this controversial part of their history began to take place.
Several Polish and Ukrainian historians began to publish monographs or essays on the subject. It quickly turned out, that Polish and Ukrainian historians did not agree about what had happened in the Polish-Ukrainian borderlands between and and how the history of this Polish-Ukrainian conflict should be written. Furthermore these historical discourses quickly became very positivistic and objectivistic in nature, as some historians tried to persuade their counterparts that their version of history was the only correct one.
Furthermore, I analyse the historiographies of these six groups and compare them, asking which facts do the historians construct? What meaning do the facts take on in the historical narratives? What kinds of symbols and metaphors do the historians use?
Where do the historians see the causes of the conflict? What plots do the historians invent to make sense from this very eventful history? View on lvivcenter. View on rzeszow. During the last years, Lemberg has experienced three and a half overflows by monuments: a Habsburg, a Polish, a Soviet, and an Ukrainian one. These were parts of civilizing projects in order to construct new realities. Since they took Since they took place in one and the same city, Lemberg seems to be a jungle of monuments from a synchronic and diachronic point of view.
The concentration of the monuments in certain periods as well as the turbulent changes in course of the time give evidence of a set of successive symbolic political occupations of the cityscape and the emotional attitude of the citizens of Lemberg to their city. The study passes criticism on the history of Lemberg regarding the monument as three-dimensional medium of politics of history in order to gain insight into the four collective imagined realities of Lemberg as well as into the immanent belief of the former and present citizens in their natural "ethnicity".
For this purpose, the study firstly explores the monuments risen or not risen in Lemberg, and secondly it analyzes the connection between politics, history and space.

Studies of modern antisemitism have focussed primarily on Germany, as both the country where the phenomenon is seen to have originated and from which it reached its genocidal culmination in the Holocaust.
This has obscured to a certain This volume, the outcome of the Simon Wiesenthal Conference , seeks to nuance such narratives by bringing to the discussion views from the peripheries. They engage the entanglements of modern antisemitism, racism, and colonialism, to explore the ideological bonds and the transmission of these political ideas and practices. The volume thus zooms in on the multi-vector conceptual transfers that operated between the centre and the peripheries, as well as on the impact of transnational contacts and social networks on antisemitic tropes and discourses.
The unifying context is that of globalisation and of a modernisation the global feature of which was its unevenness. It was this unevenness, and the resulting co-existence, incomplete overlap, and constant tension between different developmental horizons that in turn accounted for the variety of forms antisemitism took across space and time.

Although it is impossible to determine the exact number of victims of these pogroms, there is no doubt that this was the largest outbreak of anti-Jewish violence before the Shoah, the genocide during World War II in which 6 million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of the continent, were systematically murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators.

Due to political, social, and cultural circumstances, the racism and modern antisemitism in Ukrainian Galicia and Russian Ukraine differed from the paradigms in Germany, France, or even Poland. Peaceful or friendly coexistence with Poles, Jews, or Russians was impossible.
The history of European fascism is characterized by both cooperation and conflicts between movements, regimes, and individuals. Hypernationalism and racism, two intrinsic elements of fascism, simultaneously united and divided the leaders, Hypernationalism and racism, two intrinsic elements of fascism, simultaneously united and divided the leaders, members, and adherents of movements and regimes.
The Italian Fascists, the German Nazis, and a number of other similar movements and regimes wanted to unite and create Europe on their terms. A huge problem for the creation of a fascist Europe and also of a fascist European community was the obsession with violence, including the belief that conflicts should be resolved by war. Nevertheless, it was neither violence nor the ultranationalist and racist nature of fascism that caused the most brutal conflicts between fascists. Fascist movements and regimes have usually been conceived as and presented themselves as national political forces.
In fact, contemporaries as well as scholars have highlighted hyper-nationalism as one of the most important features of In fact, contemporaries as well as scholars have highlighted hyper-nationalism as one of the most important features of fascism which separated fascist movements and regimes from each other. Many historians have therefore dismissed or failed to recognize crossborder cooperations between fascists. In fact, the hyper-nationalism of fascist movements and their social Darwinist doctrines, as well as the expansionist and racist policies of the Third Reich and Fascist Italy, have led most experts to argue that fascist internationalism or international fascism was merely a camouflage and a sham.
As a corollary, fascism has largely been investigated in the framework of national history. Beyond volumes that have collected national case studies, few systematic comparative studies have been published. In particular, cross-border interactions between fascist movements and regimes have largely been dismissed in historical scholarship.

In the last two decades, a number of studies on the radical form of Ukrainian nationalism of the post-World War I period have appeared. While some scholars investigated the ideology and interactions with European and transnational However, the book has some weaknesses related to the misrepresentation of the role of violence, Holocaust, and fascism in Ukrainian history.
This results from the fact that most Ukrainian historians reject a critical examination of these subjects and are still not coming to terms with these parts of the past. During the Cold War and the post- Soviet period Ukrainian national historiography presented them in an apologetic, nostalgic, and tendentious manner.
