Dear friends!

We are glad to inform you that audioguide system started operation in Museum "Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine". It allows all those  interested to get individual tour in Ukrainian by the means of modern technologies.

Currently, first hall of the Museumthe is equipped with audioguide system. We are working on the introduction of audioguide in other halls.

You can get the audioguide in the Information Centre opposite the entrance to the Museum.

On August 12, 2015 media center "DNIPRO POST" hosted press-conference dedicated to the session of Dniprovsky Historical Club planned on August 16, 2015 at 11.00 in Holocaust Museum  and "Tkuma" Institute. Oleh Repan, Candidate of Historical Sciences, Associate Professor of Department of History of Ukraine of Oles Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University and  Igor Shchupak, Candidate of Historical Sciences, "Tkuma"У Ukrainian Institute for Holocaust Studies "Tkuma" and Museum "Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine", participated in the event.

March 10-11, Dnipropetrovsk hosted training session “Support of Volunteer Organizations Dealing with In-Migrants and ATO Soldiers”. The event was held by Kiev Resource Center for Graduates of Exchange Programs with the support of Regional State Administration and the US Embassy in partnership with the Synodal Department for Social Service of Ukrainian Orthodox Church “Elios-Mercy”.

“Tkuma” Ukrainian Institute for Holocaust and Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine” has long launched the campaign to raise funds for victims of ATO. The Institute works with in-migrants and soldiers as well as conducts special events for them. So, Iryna Piskariova, “Tkuma” Institute Head of Educational Department, joined the training-session.

Within the two-day program, participants dealt with contemporary problems that arise when working with the soldiers and in-migrants. Among the speakers there were experts on law, media literacy and psychology.

Official site of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration cites Rachel Atwood Mendiola, Assistant Cultural Affairs Office of Embassy of USA in Ukraine: “Training tells about advocacy, lobbying, assistance to psychologically affected people. Each time being in Ukraine, I'm amazed how civil society works here. That it gives us hope for a better future”.

On March 11, in Dnipropetrovsk “Menorah” Center hosted the session of strategic discussion club “EU, NATO ... What Will Enhance the Security of Ukraine?”. Leading European and Ukrainian experts, diplomats of EU Member States visited Dnepropetrovsk specially for participation in the public debate among them there were Andrius Krivas, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania; Marcin Kozhiel, Head of the NATO Liaison Office in Ukraine; Jon Elvedal Fredriksen, Ambassador of Norway to Ukraine; Adam Eberhardt, Deputy Director of the Centre for Eastern Studies; Oleksiy Haran, Ukrainian political scientist; and experts of the Institute of World Politics. Researcher Dilfuza Hlushchenko presented “Tkuma” Institute and Museum “Jewish Memory and Holocaust in Ukraine” during the debate.

Together with local experts, community activists and journalists discussed the main issues of national security of Ukraine and its influence on strategic development and even the existence of the country.
Public discussion was organized within the project of Institute of World Politics “Strategic Discussion Club in Regions of Ukraine”, supported by the Norwegian government. This project is a continuation of a successful IWP project, during which in 2013 Kyiv hosted six meetings of the Strategic Discussion Club. The dramatic events in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine confirmed the need for continuation of regular public debates on issues of national security of Ukraine, including the greater involvement of regional experts. Six regional discussions were planned and Dnipropetrovsk became the fifth city where such a meeting took place. Over the past 9 months IWP organized meetings in Kharkiv, Kyiv, Odesa and Mykolayiv.

 

On February 18, the meeting for representatives of travel agencies in the framework of the “Menorah” Center initiative on development of tourism in Dnipropetrovsk was held. The event was held in a popular European format of business breakfast and brought together over 50 participants.
Svitlana Yermakova, “Menorah” Center General Director, opened the event. She noted that the current economic situation in the country limits the ability of Ukrainians to travel abroad. So travel agencies have to offer them an alternative – not less interesting program of domestic tourism. Dnipropetrovsk City and “Menorah” Center can become a platform for the provision of tourism services and could satisfy the most demanding tastes of travelers.
