Ukrainian-Jewish Voices: Pogroms in the Russian Empire and the Great Departure

Oleksii Chebotarov, Ph.D., New Europe College, Bucharest

Anti-Jewish violence in the Russian Empire and Jewish migration to the West are pillars of Jewish historiography. These two phenomena are typically viewed as closely linked both in historical sources and in scholarly literature. This connection has been debated and criticized but remains the subject of numerous studies. This talk will focus on the critical evaluation of the understanding of migration as a result of the 1881-1883 Pogroms. The lecturer will also present a broader historical overview of the connection between violence and migration and its mythologization in diaspora narratives.

Oleksii Chebotarov (Ph.D. 2021, University of St. Gallen) is a Pontica Magna Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the New Europe College, Bucharest. His research interests lie primarily in the fields of Jewish, Ukrainian and Environmental History, Borderlands and Migration studies.
