My Ukraine: Memory & Identity

In Ukraine, your past can say a lot about your future. And as the country continues to struggle for the right to shape its 21st-century identity, many people are reexamining their family roots as a reminder of who they are today. RFE/RL correspondent Daisy Sindelar recently traveled to six Ukrainian cities -- Kyiv, Lviv, Uzhhorod, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkiv -- to talk to people about their old family photographs. What she found was a country whose tumultuous 20th-century history is far from forgotten. Fourteen Ukrainians have shared their stories, and photographs, for the "My Ukraine" project. This is but a brief sampling. Find the entire project by clicking here.
