In general, 77 works were presented. Students chose various subjects for their researches; however, we can see that the most popular topics were World War II and the Holocaust. In particular, in the section History of Ukraine 2 works, out of 23, were related to issues of the World War II, 2 were devoted to the Holocaust and 1 described the Jewish history of 19 - early 20 century. In the Local History Studies section 8 works, out of 27, were related to the problems of World War II, 2 were devoted to the Holocaust, and 1 highlighted the anti-Jewish pogrom in 1905. In the World History section 1 work out of 16 was related to the war, 1 to the Holocaust, 3 to the problems of the Jewish history, and 1 to the Armenian Genocide.
Besides the quantitative indicators we should also mention the quality of works on these topics. Thus, in the World History section the first place was taken by Yelyzaveta Bordunova with the work called Hanukkah as the Factor of Preserving the National Identity; in the section History of Ukraine the winner is D. Dunda with the work called Jewish Agricultural Colonies in Southern Ukraine in the 19 and early 20 c. The second place was taken by A.
