"Un/Archiving Post/Industry"

It is a project of the Center for Urban History and the University of St. Andrews in partnership with the Mariupol Local History Museum, Pokrovsk Historical Museum, and Donetsk Regional Museum of Local History, with the support of House of Europe and the GCRF. The project digitized about 30,000 photographic negatives and 82 films, including press photo collections from the 1940s to the 1990s, company archives, family albums, home movies, and amateur films.

The project takes place in the context of Russia’s war against Ukraine and aims to record unique evidence of community life at Donbas, to counteract the use of the past as a weapon, and to combat the spread of disinformation. Although part of this archive was destroyed in 2022 due to the war, digital copies remain available on the website of the Urban Media Archive of the Center for Urban History.
