The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation Collected More Than 50,000 War Stories
Every day, the archive of the Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation receives some new stories of Ukrainian civilians who suffered from the war. The Museum’s collection now includes more than 50,000 authentic, open-hearted, real-life stories told first-hand.
“I would like all these stories not to be erased from memory, so that our recollections remain forever. So that every human story from the Museum of Civilian Voices becomes a call to stop this terrible war and prevent similar tragedies in the future,” emphasizes Rinat Akhmetov, the Foundation’s founder.
The Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation is the world’s largest archive of stories from Ukrainian civilians who became victims or witnesses of the war. The Museum collects accounts and evidences of those who survived for the whole world to remember and never to forgive Russia’s war crimes against Ukraine. Behind every story, there is a voice and face of an individual who has gone through the tragedy and has seen the tragedies of others. There is hope and faith in Victory in every story.
The Museum keeps developing and expanding its outlook: exclusive interviews of famous historians, thinkers, artists, experts in the field of preservation of national memory enrich its collection. The Museum has launched a series of podcasts with interviews of these experts who shared their thoughts on Ukraine, the war, the world, and the future with the Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation.
