On 10 November 2022, a round table on 'Preservation and Rethinking of the Cultural Heritage of Ukrainian cities in Times of the War: History, Politics, Memory' was held as part of the III International Scientific and Practical Conference 'Transformation of Historical Memory.'
Since 2014, Russian military aggression against Ukraine has led to
significant destruction of cultural heritage sites. At the same time,
the war became a trigger for rethinking the cultural heritage of
Ukrainian cities. In particular, the attitude of citizens to what
deserves to be preserved and renovation, and what heritage should be
eliminated (not only as a material object, but also erased from the
collective memory of urban communities) has changed. During the round
table, a group of experts discussed issues related to the loss of the
cultural heritage of Ukraine due to Russian military aggression and
strategies for preserving and rethinking the cultural heritage of
Ukrainian cities in the conditions of war.
The discussion of the current challenges facing the cultural heritage of Ukraine was organized within the CITY AND WAR project.
We thank all the participants of the round table: Bohdan Halaiko, Viktor Dokashenko, Halyna Dokashenko, Pavlo Yeremeev, Nataliia Ivanova, Serhii Posokhov, Nadiia Temirova, Iryna Shramko, moderator - Yevhen Rachkov.
