2018 Bernie Klein Memorial Lecture: Dr. Omer Bartov

The Kingsborough-Manhattan Beach Holocaust Memorial Center in collaboration with the college’s Department of History, Philosophy, and Political Science presents the 2018 Bernie Klein Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by Dr. Omer Bartov, the John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of European History at Brown University.

Dr. Bartov’s lecture titled “Anatomy of a Genocide: The Life and Death of a Town Called Buczacz” will be delivered on Monday, November 19, 2018 between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm in the MAC Lighthouse on the campus of Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, NY.

For more than four hundred years, the Eastern European border town of Buczacz—today part of Ukraine—was home to a highly diverse citizenry. It was here that Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews all lived side by side in relative harmony. Then came World War II, and three years later the entire Jewish population had been murdered by German and Ukrainian police, while Ukrainian nationalists eradicated Polish residents.

In his talk, Dr. Omer Bartov will explain how ethnic cleansing doesn’t occur as is so often portrayed in popular history, with the quick ascent of a vitriolic political leader and the unleashing of military might. It begins in seeming peace, slowly and often unnoticed, the culmination of pent-up slights and grudges and indignities. The perpetrators aren’t just sociopathic soldiers. They are neighbors and friends and family. They are human beings, proud and angry and scared. They are also middle-aged men who come from elsewhere, often with their wives and children and parents, and settle into a life of bourgeois comfort peppered with bouts of mass murder: an island of normality floating on an ocean of blood.
