During the German occupation, from 1941 to 1944, over one million Jewish children, women, and men were murdered and hastily buried in mass shooting operations throughout the territory of what is today Ukraine. The international project “Protecting Memory” works both to transform the neglected and forgotten mass graves of Jews and Roma into dignified places of remembrance and information points and to preserve the memory of the victims for the present and future.

Dedication ceremonies

In September 2019 the dedication ceremonies will be held at our project locations.

The full 2019 program and invitation for the press can be found here.
