During WWII Lviv experienced a variety of traumatic occupations that disrupted the balance of relations between its major ethnic inhabitants, Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians. Prof Hnatiuk explores the myths, the animosities, and the interactions between these groups during the war years. The main focus of this lecture is on the cooperation between representatives of Lviv's intelligentsia (doctors, scholars, artists).

Alexandra (Ola) Hnatiuk received her PhD in Ukrainian Literature from Warsaw University in 1992. She was a Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute Shklar Fellow in 2001-2002. Ola Hnatiuk is Professor in Culture Studies at Warsaw University, and since 2010 she is Professor at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Head of the Master’s Program in the History Department, Coordinator of the Joint Master’s Program of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy with Warsaw University.

Die Berlin-Brandenburg Ukraine Initiative (BBUI) wird von dem Historiker Andrii Portnov, Gast des Wissenschaftskollegs zu Berlin und long-term Fellow am Forum Transregionale Studien, geleitet. Die Initiative versucht zu einem besseren Verständnis der Situation in der Ukraine und ihrer benachbarten Staaten beizutragen. Die zentrale Idee ist es, Ansichten und Analysen aus Osteuropa in die deutsche wissenschaftliche und allgemeine Öffentlichkeit zu vermitteln, die Alternativen zur  Sprache des Nationalismus, der Rhetorik von »ethnischen Zonen« und »historischem Recht« anbieten.
