ROM Connects - A World Away: Photographing Babyn Ya

Join us for a panel discussion, hosted by Koffler Centre of the Arts’ Joshua Heuman, to explore the intersections of art, architecture, and memory through the lens of both the newly dedicated (2021) Synagogue at Babyn Yar, Ukraine, and the Koffler Centre’s current exhibition The Synagogue at Babyn Yar: Turning the Nightmare of Evil into a Shared Dream of Good.

Featuring exhibition contributors Edward Burtynsky, Maxim Dondyuk (via live video from Ukraine), and architect and Holocaust scholar Robert Jan van Pelt, conversation will focus on the groundbreaking photographic collaboration that highlights both an important memorial to the Holocaust in Ukraine, and the importance of preserving the past for future generations.

Note: Maxim Dondyuk will be joining the conversation via a video link from Kyiv, Ukraine.
