Documenting Ukraine Grants
The purpose of the project is to record the oral testimonies of university teachers and students living in temporarily occupied territories. Its target groups are:
- lecturers and students of Berdyansk State Pedagogical University (ВSPU) who were living in the temporarily occupied territories of the South-East of Ukraine in the first days of the full-scale war and were forced to look for a safer place to stay;
- lecturers and students of BSPU who stayed behind in Berdyansk (under occupation).
We expect to conduct 60–80 interviews and to document the collected testimonies.
The uniqueness of the idea of this project is to document the stories of those people who are involved in pedagogy. We are convinced that such data will be valuable not only locally, but also for the world for spreading the truth about the war and the impact of the occupation on people's lives.
