Raphael Lemkin Center for Documenting Russian Crimes in Ukraine

In response to the Russian attack on Ukraine and reports of Russian military actions against civilians, the Pilecki Institute has established the Raphael Lemkin Center for Documenting Russian Crimes in Ukraine.

The task of the unit will be to collect and preserve evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Russian troops on Ukrainian territory, and especially to collect and record witness testimonies. 

The truth about the suffering of Ukraine will be recorded! We are appealing to volunteers for support in collecting the accounts of the Ukrainian people. If you know the Ukrainian language and are willing to help in documenting the testimonies, please contact us via: ukraina2022@instytutpileckiego.pl or fill out the form.

The story of witnesses of Russian aggression will be recorded by employees of the "Witnesses of the Age" project (YouTube channel), who have experience in collecting filmed testimonies and working with oral history. The Institute cooperates with historians, researchers of the crimes of totalitarianism in the 20th century, and experts in international humanitarian law of armed conflicts. Ukrainian-speaking volunteers who wish to help conduct interviews with refugees will be trained in advance by Institute staff.
