Graphic with the name of the event.

November 23 (Thursday), 7 pm


How do we talk about Ukraine to put it in the middle of the grand historical processes? How much influence did Columb had on Ukraine? How did the Ukrainian rebellion against the Soviets translate to the Great Famine in the 1930s? What role did Ukrainian grain play in world politics and economy?


We invited you to take part in the meeting with Prof. Jarosław Hrytsak, author of the book “Ukraine. Overcoming the Past,” which was published this fall by the International Cultural Centre. The meeting was hosted by the Deputy Director of Programme Policy, Łukasz Galusek.
