Ola Hnatiuk’s “Courage and Fear:” Book Talk

“Courage and Fear” is an evocative and meticulously documented study of World War II Lviv’s intelligentsia, masterfully told through stories of individuals who inhabited the city in that period. Ola Hnatiuk presents the rich tapestry of Lviv’s intricate social fabric and the way in which it was violently erased as the city changed hands and names, helping us see real human beings behind grand national narratives.

This book will be available for purchase at the event.
