Two years ago, I decided to compile a list of good books for your summer reading pleasure.

In 2018, the list consisted of 14 great books, presented in two parts.

We have reviewed eight more outstanding books since then, so I decided to do it again.

In Part 1 this year:

Dave Tarras, the King of Klezmer by Yale Strom, which chronicles the life and work of a Ukrainian-born man who became known as "The Benny Goodman of Klezmer.

Jews and Ukrainians: A Millennium of Co-Existence by Paul Robert Magocsi and Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern, a comprehensive historical account of the relationship between Jews and ethnic Ukrainians.

Babyn Yar: History and Memory dedicated to the commemoration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of Babyn Yar a scenic area once known as the “Switzerland of Kyiv that has become a global symbol of the Holocaust.

A Journey through the Ukrainian-Jewish Encounter: From Antiquity to 1914, a book based on a traveling exhibition that examined the history and interactions of these two peoples living side by side on Ukrainian lands.
