“The memory must remain for the next generations. So that even after a few centuries people know what the Russian world is,” says Vladimir Obodzinsky. His wife, daughter, son and grandchildren were killed by aerial bombs.
“We evacuated from Irpen with all our shelter. In this photo I am standing with 19 dogs,” recalls volunteer Nastya Tykha. Her photo with rescued animals went viral.
“My closet and rooster are signs that victory will be with us,” Nadezhda Svatko from Borodyanka is confident. Her belongings, which survived in the ruins of the broken house, became symbols of the resilience of Ukrainians.
More than 100,000 stories of peaceful Ukrainians about the war were collected by the Rynat Akhmetov Foundation’s “Voices of the Peace” Museum – the first and largest archive of stories of civilian victims of the Russian war in Ukraine in the country and the world. This is a colossal amount of survivor testimony. These are memories of those who are no longer there. These are honest, scary, genuine stories about pain, suffering and horror. Stories about courage, faith and hope.
Look, listen, think.
The “Voices of Peace” museum has become the primary source of the truth about the war, the chronicle of the tragedy experienced by the country since 2014, and a large-scale portal that preserves valuable components of Ukraine’s national memory. He created not only the most important archive, but also the basis for the just conviction of war criminals, a source of support for those who remained alive and strive to tell their truth out loud.
The museum is a dynamically developing platform cooperating with the world community. World mass media interact with the Museum, helping to convey the truth about what Ukraine is experiencing. The museum implements cooperation with foreign universities in the field of education and science, organizes events in European countries and Ukraine with the involvement of world experts. And also supports documentary cinema and shares stories with filmmakers to tell the world about the experience of Ukrainians.
Partners of the Museum are the Oral History Association (USA), USC Shoah Foundation, Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, Kyiv National University named after Taras Shevchenko and Maria Curia-Sklodowska University in Lublin, Museum of the History of the City of Kyiv.
