Historique de la conservation

The project has been carried out since March 2022. The project materials were disseminated on social media (Facebook and Twitter) and posted on the project’s website:, both in the language of the original and in English translation. The project did not aim to provide live updates on what was happening in Ukraine, nor to turn documentary materials into literature or art. The goal was rather to disseminate and archive the testimonials that were received. Testimonials transmitted to the project team are periodically deposited to the Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives.

Portée et contenu

The Writings from the War / Я пишу з війни collection consists of testimonials of Ukrainians about their experience of the Russian invasion of their country. These firsthand testimonials are transmitted to the project team from various hiding places; from shelters, train stations, and refugee camps; from besieged cities. The project’s team includes Alex Averbuch (the project’s archiving coordinator), Valentyna Vzdulska (the initiator of the project), Daria Bairak and Maryna Solohub (SMM managers and co-coordinators), as well as numerous volunteers assisting in translating the testimonials and maintaining project platforms (website, social media).

The mission of Writings from the War is to collect, preserve, and disseminate these testimonials, so as to provide a documentary source for researchers, academics, students, journalists, artists, and the public in general. There are testimonials by soldiers, volunteers, doctors, drivers, teachers, animal rights activists, cooks, artists, and scientists – people of all professions; by adults and children, displaced persons, rescuers and the rescued – in short, anyone interested in sharing their experience with the world. This is a panoramic picture of the wartime “everyday,” reflecting private experiences during this catastrophe. All the testimonials have been provided to the project team by the witnesses themselves, and every story has a title, and a record of the person behind it.

Further accruals are expected.

Note générale

Full names of witnesses are kept private (only the first name and the city are shared publicly) for security reasons, as some of them might still be on the occupied territories.
