< The Anne Frank guide training in Ukraine
Since 2002, the Anne Frank House has been active in Ukraine. With support of the Dutch government the travelling Anne Frank exhibition was shown in dozens of cities in all parts of the country. As a follow-up, in 2008 the Anne Frank House and its Ukrainian partners started a large scale project for teachers and journalists. It includes a book publishing programme and trainings on the promotion of tolerance.

(I guess this last point is problematical in Ukraine)

< Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky of the UGCC
“…the compilers’ logic is that if there were no Andrey Sheptytsky, there would be no Ukrainian integral nationalism, if there were no Ukrainian integral nationalism, there would be no dramatic events in Volyn 1943. Obviously, it is clear even to an unprofessional historian that this is outright manipulation.”
The e-book has made continued inroads into the publishing world but the printed book has defied predictions of its death. Research by Professor John Thompson focuses on the challenges facing the publishing industry as it embraces the opportunities afforded by the digital revolution.
