The aim of the project is an analysis of the practices that were used in Soviet Ukraine concerning children: forced deprivation of parental rights and placement of children in orphanages. The main thesis of the research is how the orphanage system served the purpose of educating “Soviet people,” besides other social functions. The research aims to analyze such practices and provide a collective portrait of the participants of the process––the children and staff. At the intersection of different aspects of Soviet policy was the individual child.
