Jewish Communities and Support for Awareness of the Holocaust
For more than 13 years, the Victor Pinchuk Foundation has supported Ukraine's Jewish community and contributed to sustainable interethnic understanding in Ukraine and to nationwide comprehension of the Holocaust tragedy. For his contribution to bringing Jewish and non-Jewish Ukrainians closer together and for his support for Jewish communities in Ukraine, Victor Pinchuk received the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Award in 2014.
By granting the Sheptytsky Award to Mr. Pinchuk, we acknowledge the compelling aspirations of contemporary Ukrainians to build a tolerant and just society for all citizens.

In 2006, a documentary about the Holocaust in Ukraine, "Spell Your Name", was co-produced by Steven Spielberg and Victor Pinchuk with the USC Shoah Foundation Institute. Over the past 13 years, the Foundation has supported, among others, the Joseph and Fanny Tsindlikht private pre-school in Dnipro. It has also supported the Yad Vashem International School for Holocaust Studies, an event organized by the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Babyn Yar tragedy, and the exhibition "Holocaust by Bullets" about the mass shootings of Jews by German soldiers, which was shown in several Ukrainian cities.
