Family photos: Ukrainian stories

The power of old photographs is evident in the personal stories told for this project:

My Ukraine: Memory and Identity

‘Some are kept in shoe boxes in a forgotten closet corner. Others are glued carefully into albums and kept on the family bookshelf. Many have been lost forever, destroyed out of panic or indifference. In Ukraine, whose tumultuous 20th-century history has spilled over into a bloody battle for its 21st-century identity, every picture tells a story. RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty’s Daisy Sindelar travelled to six Ukrainian cities to talk to people about what their old family photographs say to them about who they, and their country, are today’.
