UKRAINIAN HISTORY – ORAL HISTORY PROJECT
The UMA’s mission is to preserve and share Ukrainian culture and the immigrant experience. There is perhaps no better way to implement that mission than to capture and preserve memories, stories, and life experiences. This is the goal of the Oral History Project – to record, for future generations, historical testimonies offered by members of our own community. Of particular interest are testimonies involving Ukrainian-American life and the immigrant experience, recollections of growing up in Cleveland, organizations, challenges faced by newly-arrived Ukrainians, recollections of World War II, and recollections of Displaced Persons Camps.
We invite you to nominate individual(s) who would be willing and able to share their testimonies. Please understand that not all nominees can be interviewed, especially those who live outside the greater Cleveland area. To nominate an individual, please complete the Nomination Form and return it to the museum at:
