United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: the mission of the Museum of Civilian Voices of Rinat Akhmetov Foundation is extremely important today

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has published an article about the importance of the Museum of Civilian Voices of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, which has already collected more than 100,000 first-hand accounts of the war from Ukrainians since 2014. You can find the article here

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum presents to the American audience the mission, methods, and areas of work of the Museum of Civilian Voices, discusses the importance of collecting stories and preserving Ukraine's national memory, and reflects on what U.S. politicians and people can do to support Ukraine.

"U.S. politicians can best help bring peace to Ukraine by supporting Ukraine's early accession to NATO, in addition to continuing to support Ukraine until the end of the war," said Nataliya Yemchenko, member of the Supervisory Board of the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation, in an interview with the Holocaust Museum.

According to Nataliya, one of the areas that the United States can best support is the preservation and dissemination of the truth about the reality of the war, including in the United States.

"This war is happening live and before our eyes, and we already have millions of civilian and military testimonies that essentially serve as an online archive of this war. This needs to be turned into a real archive that can be stored, digitised, studied and disseminated, ideally with the support of American scholars, museums and technology companies (such as Google)."

According to Nataliya Yemchenko, this will make the truth recorded, the process transparent, and Ukraine as understandable and visible as possible to Americans.

"Ordinary Americans help a lot, but there is an area where they could do more - to spread the truth about this war, told by ordinary people who have lived through it and share their own experience," she emphasised.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is the official Holocaust memorial in the United States. The museum documents, studies, and interprets the history of the Holocaust. Its mission is to help the world's leaders and citizens confront hatred, prevent genocide, uphold human dignity, and strengthen democracy. The museum has offices in New York, Boston, Boca Raton, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Dallas.
