Front-page headlines on political turmoil in the Ukraine greet us every day, but, as is always the case in politics, the past is context for the present.
Indeed, the past 100 years has been a century of tumult for the Jews, Ethnic Ukrainians and other peoples of the region. An abbreviated list of crises, catastrophes, and critical junctures of the period includes WWI, The Russian Revolution, and the Ukrainian War of Independence; the Pogroms of the following decade; The famine of 1932-33; The Holocaust; and Two World Wars and the displacement and forced repatriations that followed. Amid the devastation, communities of all stripes developed cultural, political, and religious movements and a literature to describe variously their blossomings and their annihilation, their grief and their dreams, and their outrage and their calls to arms.
We offer below an assortment of rare imprints representing various facets of life in the Ukraine, Jewish and otherwise, and its diaspora.
A particular strentgh of this collection is a large assortment of Ukrainian language material published in or near the DP camps immediately after the war, including the first Ukrainian edition of George Orwell's Anti-Stalinist classic, Animal Farm.
