Abstract

Burial sites and places of memory are important sights of the past. Their current state reflects the attitude of contemporary generations to the history of the family in particular and to the history of the nation and the country as a whole. These objects can serve as a resource for the development of various types of tourism, including religious, pilgrimage, cognitive, ethnographic, genealogical, dark tourism etc. There are a large number of Jewish mass graves and places of memory of the Holocaust victims in Ukraine, which can be considered as historical and cultural component of the regional ethnocultural potential. The goal of the article is to evaluate the current state of mass graves and places of memory of the Holocaust victims in small towns in the Capital socio-geographical region of Ukraine as a component of the ethnocultural potential of the region. The article reveals the impor tance of the mass graves and places of memory of the Holocaust victims in small towns in the Capital socio-geographical region of Ukraine both as a part of historical memory and as a component of the ethnocultural potential of the region. The historical preconditions of appearance of mentioned objects on the investigated area are considered. The present state of the mass graves and the places of memory of the Holocaust victims in the researched towns is analysed. The author proposes key approaches to protect and memorialize Jewish mass graves and places of memory of the Holocaust victims in Ukraine, emphasizing that honouring the memory of the victims is a necessary symbol for present and future generations. However, the embodiment of the ethnocultural potential might serve as a competitive advantage in the development of tourism and may result in the improvement of the socio-economic situation in the region.
