  • List of those killed in the Pogroms in the Ukraine 1918-1920
    Megilat haTevah describes events in 396 locations where Jews were murdered. This database was donated by Prof. Gur Alroey of Haifa University. Megilat haTevah of Eliezer David Rosenthal was one of the most comprehensive and important works written about Ukrainian Jewry in general and about the Jews during the period of the civil war in particular. The work is a priceless contribution to understanding the pogroms in Ukraine. Rosenthal’s documentary project is so impressive in range and content that no parallel can be found in modern Jewish history. Unlike historians and chroniclers, Rosenthal did not seek to trace the causes of the pogroms, their motivations, or their scope. Instead he was concerned with the ordinary Jew who was the first to pay the price of the bloodstained civil war in the disintegrating tsarist empire. Megilat haTevah thus reveals the appalling events of the war from the viewpoint of the survivor and the victim. Its commemorates the tens of thousands of massacred Jews.
