History and myths in relationship of Ukrainians and Jews in Ukraine. Images of Ukrainian and Jewish leaders Symon Petliura and Vladimir Zhabotinskiy, who acted in the beginning of the 20th century, were created by ideological propaganda.
The two peoples' history is full of dramatic moments: centuries of peacetime and years of war, revolutions and pogroms, betraying and rescuing the Jews by the Ukrainians in the years of Hitler occupation. The return of Jews to the Promised Land in the middle of the 20th century.
