Що таке пам'ятати

What is to remember

A comprehensive analytical study of the practices of commemoration of those killed in the Russian-Ukrainian war, as a result of which a series of expert discussion panels will be held and a book will be published.

Why is this topic important?

Commemoration of fallen defenders is extremely important for the formation of national identity and civil society. State institutions that work with remembrance do not have a coherent vision of a national memory policy that would help move in one direction, develop and declare the necessary messages. In Ukrainian society, a limited number of remembrance practices are usually used, which are mostly raised, "butafor", and sometimes traumatizing. Actually, the What is to Remember project will help to find gaps in existing policies of remembrance, to raise and raise publicity in society about this topic, as well as to propose aspects that should be changed.

What we do to achieve the goal

The project aims at a deep and comprehensive analysis (cultural, sociological, historical and legal) of policies and existing practices to commemorate the fallen soldiers in the Russian-Ukrainian war in the East of Ukraine, as well as to establish a public dialogue on conceptual issues of commemoration as an important component of the formation of civil consciousness and national identity.

As a result of the research within the framework of the project, on the basis of expert discussions with stakeholders, a Vision of Remembrance will be formed between all institutions involved in the formation and implementation of a policy of remembrance. Recommendations will also be drawnup that can be used by the Ministry for Veterans Affairs to further work on the formation of a policy of commemoration and drafting bills and other regulations in this area.

The following discussions are planned during the project:

"Commemoration and national-patriotic education";

"Commemoration in urban space";

"Support for the families of fallen defenders in the Russian-Ukrainian war";

"From the tragic news to the last month of rest: how the process of paying last respect to the fallen defenders is organized in Ukraine."


And also articles will be published: 

"Commemoration and national-patriotic education";

"Commemoration in urban space";

"Support for the families of fallen defenders in the Russian-Ukrainian war";

"From the tragic news to the last month of rest: how the process of paying last respect to the fallen defenders is organized in Ukraine."

What has already been done

In 2020, the project "What is to remember" in partnership with the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance and the Ministry for Veterans Affairs of Ukraine has already conducted a series of successful discussion panels "How to honor the victims of the Russian-Ukrainian war", "Remember for a long time, to speak modernly: how to honor the victims of the Russian-Ukrainian war", "Art and heroization: living man, not pathos myth".

Current project status: In progress.

With the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.
