Professor Zvi Gitelman
Zvi Gitelman studies ethnicity and politics, especially in former Communist countries, as well as Israeli politics, East European politics, and Jewish political thought and behavior. His most recent book is Jewish Identities in Postcommunist Russia and Ukraine: An Uncertain Ethnicity. It draws on two large surveys at the beginning and end of the 1990s that he conducted with two colleagues in Russia. Professor Gitelman’s current project is on ethnic relations in the Soviet armed forces during the war and Soviet policy regarding the Holocaust. It is based on hundreds of oral testimonies of Soviet Jewish veterans of World War Two, and on Soviet archives.
