Interethnic Relations in Buczacz, Galicia, 1500-1945, and the Origins of the Holocaust

This project investigates relations between Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews in the town of Buczacz from its foundation to the aftermath of the Holocaust. Situated in the borderlands of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Buczacz was under Habsburg rule after 1772, came under Poland in the interwar period, and was occupied by the Soviets and the Germans in World War II, during which time its Jewish inhabitants were murdered and the Poles ethnically cleansed. Today it is in Ukraine. The project will reconstruct interethnic relations over an extended period of time; examine communal responses to war and violence; and investigate how this past is remembered and commemorated. The project has much wider relevance to the history of Eastern Europe?s borderlands regions and to the history of genocide and communal coexistence and violence more generally. By January 2008 I will complete my research and hope to use the fellowship for writing up the book.
