INTRODUCTION: Odesa's Many Frontiers, by Jessica Zychowicz and Volodymyr Kravchenko

Why focus on Odesa? Because it is the largest, strategically located port on the Black Sea—the continental gateway to the Mediterranean? Or because it remains one of the world’s leading exporters of grain now closed by a broad Russian military blockade? Or is it because of the city’s extremely rich tendency toward myth-making? Something as seemingly banal as Odesa’s 'Potemkin Steps' have been firmly immortalized into film canons from L.A. to Toronto to Paris by Sergei Eizenshtein (Sergey Eisenstein)in his world-renowned film, Bronenosets Potemkin(Battleship Potemkin, 1925) . . .
