Odessa During WWII

Hosted By: The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy (LESJC)

During the final segment of this three-part series about Jewish Odessa, uncover the most devastating period of Odessa’s Jewish history -the Nazi and Romanian occupation during World War II.

Visit the Holocaust Memorial, created as a private initiative of an honorable Odessa citizen. Hear the story of Odesseans who saved Jews during the war, among them a doctor, who has been called “Odessa’s Schindler.” Our presenter will virtually take you to the area of the first Jewish ghetto, established in 1942. See the place where 24,000 Jews and Red Army soldiers were burnt in four wooden barracks. Find out what effect this tragic period left upon Odessa’s Jewry, and how this tragic period is currently commemorated. Learn the story of the city’s Holocaust survivors.
