The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and Radio Svoboda Joined Efforts in Collecting War Stories
The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and Radio Svoboda have jointed their efforts so that more people around the world could know about the stories of Ukrainian civilians who became victims or witnesses of the war.
he Museum of Civilian Voices is the world’s largest archive of stories from civilians affected by the war. Currently, its collection numbers more than 40,000 first-hand stories that have been collected since 2014.
The Museum’s mission is to collect, file, categorize and share the stories of Ukrainian civilians for better understanding of life amid the war in the name of a better future. The Museum seeks to create a reliable source of information about the life of Civilians in the conditions of the war. Its other objective is to be a psychotherapeutic project for Ukrainians who experienced the war trauma, as they have the opportunity to share their pain by telling their life stories to others.
The mission of Radio Svoboda is to promote democratic values and institutions, as well as human rights, by addressing the audiences in those countries where the freedom of press is restricted by the authorities or has not yet become the norm of their civil life. In addition, the Radio’s press service collects stories of civilians who suffered from Russia’s war in Ukraine. Therefore, joining efforts within the framework of the information partnership aims to strengthen these projects’ common mission.
