The project is run with the active participation of international and local partners.
The project team works closely with the Ukrainian Centre for Holocaust Studies in Kyiv. Activities at the various project sites involves local and regional administrations, schools, and Jewish communities, including the Jewish Community of Berdychiv, various Jewish communities in Vinnytsia, the Society for Jewish Language and Culture, and the Bratslav Jewish Community.
Additional international partners include the Committee for the Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe, which oversees the non-invasive archaeological surveys as well as the construction work, and the Conference of European Rabbis.
In Berlin, the project team’s work is supported by regular information meetings with representatives from the German Federal Foreign Office, the American Jewish Committee Berlin, the Central Council of Jews in Germany, and the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma.
The historical work for the project is monitored by an advisory board of historians, the members of which are
Dr Anatolii Podolskyi and Mykhailo Tyahlyy (both from the Ukrainian Centre for Holocaust Studies),
Dr Andrej Angrick (Hamburg Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Culture),
Prof. Habbo Knoch (University of Cologne),

As our scope of our work increases, so does the number of project partners. We have established links with the interdisciplinary working group “Landscapes of Conflict” at Osnabrück University and with the History Workshop Minsk.
