KOLODIANKA – Connecting Memory

Around 100 Jews from Kolodianka and the surrounding area were murdered in a nearby field and hastily buried in four mass graves.

This publication presents the life and death story of the Jewish community in the Ukrainian village of Kolodianka during the Holocaust. The village, located in the Novohrad- Volynsky district of the Zhytomyr region of Ukraine, is one of the sites of the international project «Protecting Memory». The project helped transform this killing site of the Jews into a dignified memorial and place of information.

The research is based on sources from Ukrainian and foreign archives, academic literature and private collections.

Both the project and the historical research, which resulted in this publication, have been funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
