Ukrainische Verbindungen

In the organizer's words:

Ukrainian connections

Short lectures, music and interviews with contemporary witnesses:

February 24, 2022 marks a decisive day in European history: it is the day on which the Russian invasion of Ukraine began and many people had to leave their homes. Some of them also fled to us in the Isar Valley.

A representative of the Chair of Eastern and South-Eastern European Studies at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (requested) will open the evening with a keynote speech on Ukrainian history. We will learn about the closely interwoven history of Russia, Poland and Ukraine since the time of Peter the Great.

After the lecture, members of the BADEHAUS team will present short biographies of Ukrainians who were deported to the Wolfratshauser Forst as forced laborers for the armaments factories, survived the death march as concentration camp prisoners, sought refuge as Jewish displaced persons in the Föhrenwald camp or found refuge in our district as current war refugees. On this evening, we will talk to some of the refugees and hear sounds from their homeland from 12-year-old bandura player Darina Semenova. If the political situation allows, we are also expecting guests who have traveled from Ukraine especially for this event.
