No. 51 January 2011
Note from the Editor
Sixteen years ago, our Bulletin appeared for the first time in Russian and English. The make-up of the editorial board saw changes but we persisted in exposing our readers to information on our educational and scientific programs, conferences and seminars, new publications, and Holocaust commemoration events. What matters is not only that we are read in pseudo-patriotic circles in «Nash sovremennik» (vols. 1-8, 10, 2010) who desperately try to protect Holocaust deniers, but first and foremost, by Russian and foreign teachers and scholars. This may be learnt from the fact that there is a growing demand for the Bulletin in Russia and post-Soviet states.
Let me cherish the hope that we do not stop. That the Russian state permanently supports Holocaust educational programs led to concrete results: for the first time since its inception, more than 1,000 schoolchildren, teachers, and students, most of them representing Russian periphery, took part in our contest. This serves as a weighty argument to further cooperation with educational authorities in Russian periphery. This issue will emphasize our projects conducted jointly with the Museum of the Holocaust and Jewish Heritage at Poklonnaya Gora. As always, the issue contains material on new publications that appeared within the framework of the Russian Holocaust Library.
