CfP: Book Reviews in the Eastern European Holocaust Studies (A new online journal from Kiev in Ukraine); by: –

Eastern European Holocaust Studies (Web)

In October 2021, the Babyn Yar Holocaust Memorial Center in Kiev (Web) founded the academic online journal „Eastern European Holocaust Studies“. It is published by De Gruyter and is the first peer-reviewed journal in Ukraine.

The editorial board is international, Andrea Petö (Vienna/Budapest) is Editor-in-Chief. Eleonore Lappin-Eppel (Vienna) is responsible for the book reviews. She therefore invites researchers to write reviews for this new journal. More information and the submission guidelines can be found here (Web).

Due to the belligerent attacks on Ukraine, it is an act of solidarity for the members of the editorial board to ensure the publication of the journal. If you have any questions, please write to Eleonore Lappin-Eppel at

About the Journal

Eastern European Holocaust Studies: Interdisciplinary Journal of the BYHMC provides an outlet for researchers dealing with the history of the Holocaust and the Second World War in Central and Eastern Europe – and as such, aims to contribute to the incorporation of both the modern and contemporary history of this territory and the topic of the aftermath of the war into the international academic scene. While research on conflict and genocide in Eastern Europe has become increasingly prevalent, only a handful of scholars have dealt with post-war issues connected to the Holocaust and the war, therefore the editorial team aims at inspiring new investigations and publications on these topics.

Eastern European Holocaust Studies is a peer-reviewed bi-annual multidisciplinary scholarly journal, which aims to be a major international forum for publishing theoretically sophisticated, and empirically grounded original research in the intersection of media studies, memory studies, gender studies, historical and sociological research, literary science, as well as war studies and Holocaust and Genocide Research, and so forth. Submissions should be original contributions and not under simultaneous consideration for other publications. The editors will preferably accept the proposals with an interdisciplinary approach.
