Documenting The Human Experience In Wartime

Since the onset of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 22, 2022, over 13 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes. 15,000 civilians have been injured, and nearly 9,000 have lost their lives.

The Museum of Civilian Voices has been collecting stories from Ukrainian victims of Russian aggression since 2014. The Museum now hosts the world’s largest digital archive of Ukrainian civilians telling their own lived experiences during the war. Visitors are immersed in an experience that puts them face-to-face with those who lost their relatives, friends, and homes, and who have survived Russia’s infiltration and captivity.

More than 70,000 stories have already been collected from Ukrainians, illustrating tragedy, triumph, and resilience. The Museum is a source of first-hand storytelling for filmmakers and documentarians who are interested in preserving historical memory, showcasing the human experience, and providing transparency to the world.

Join us for a video screening, panel discussion with Q&A, and reception where you will hear firsthand from civilians featured in the archives and from filmmakers who have collaborated with the museum to deliver compelling stories from the frontlines. The discussion will also focus on the role of film in cataloging citizen experiences during wartime and the importance of preserving the true historical record of these events.
