The Holocaust in Ukraine: a Graphic Novel

Based on the Centropa film ‘Return to Rivne: A Holocaust Story‘, the artist Julia Antonova has created a graphic novel, available here in English, German, Polish, Romanian and Ukrainian. English and Ukrainian copies are also available in paperback.

The story revolves around two Jewish girls, Shelly and Raya, from the town of Rivne, then Równe, who survived the horrors of World War II.

They tell of their childhood during the war, about their lives in hiding, and their return to Rivne several decades later, when they visit the descendants of the brave Ukrainian farmers who took them in and sheltered them during the war.

A project by Centropa in partnership with Інша Освіта / Insha Osvita.
