Exhibition of paintings in the synagogue of Münster

On 9 November 2022, a large gathering dedicated to the Holocaust, the genocide of the Jewish people during World War II, took place in the synagogue of the city of Munster (Germany). The Holocaust killed approximately 6 million Jews between 1933 and 1945. Other ethnic and social communities, who were persecuted and killed by the Nazis for belonging to these communities (Roma, homosexuals, Freemasons, the terminally ill, etc.), are also usually perceived as victims of the Holocaust.
The organisers of the meeting asked the Union of Ukrainian Language and Culture in Munster to organise an exhibition of Ukrainian artists’ works. Natalia Iordan from Kharkiv and Ihor Shurov from Kyiv submitted their works. The works of Ukrainian artists received favourable reviews from visitors to the exhibition.
