CFP | 2017 AJS Panel: Jewish Migration and Modern Jewish Life in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union

I would like to organize a panel for the 2017 AJS Conference (December 17-19, 2017, Washington, DC) on Jewish Migration and Modern Jewish Life in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. I am going to present my paper “The Holodomor and Jews in Ukraine,” which show how the Holodomor provoked migration of Jews from starving shtetls to the large cities, where the situation with provisions was somewhat better.

I am looking for a panel chair, two paper presenters and a discussant.
