Watch Live Program:How the War in Ukraine Is Shaped by Its Past



Today, the Ukrainian people are under attack. The story of their nation is forever linked to the 1.5 million Jews and 70,000 other civilians murdered there by the Germans and their collaborators during the Holocaust. Russian President Vladimir Putin has twisted that history to justify an invasion, falsely claiming to be waging war against Nazism and genocide.
