The Russian invasion of Ukraine has plunged the region into the worst crisis since World War II. From the outset of the war, participants on all sides have consciously evoked the Jewish past and the history of genocide in the region to justify present-day political claims. Please join us for a panel discussion about how periods of crisis in the fraught Ukrainian-Jewish past might allow us to make clearer sense of the present conflict.
Tuesday March 15, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Russia’s declaration of war on Ukraine on February 24, 2022 marked the first time a European state has been invaded by another since the Second World War, unleashed a humanitarian crisis and heightened the international nuclear threat. What does this situation mean for us as the Baruch community? How can we be more cognizant of those of us–among faculty, students and staff–who are affected by the crisis and exhibit more empathy? What are reputable sources where we can find out about what is happening–and what can we do to help? This event is moderated by Katherine Tsan and Allison Lehr Samuels.
March 8 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST
