Choose and watch any conversation using tags or questions you’re interested in.
Any person above 18 can register for a talk — regardless of the level of his/her historical awareness, gender, occupation, and nationality. Each of us has some memory, feelings, views, and values. They will become the center of conversation.
QUESTIONS
The conversation is based on questions. The questions have been compiled by the project team to focus on the personal experience of a specific person, and not to check his/her knowledge of history or assess his/her views. The questions are related to different periods of a personal history, history of the country and the world. The interviewer chooses the sequence, the number of the questions as well as the questions themselves in the course of the talk, for each story to be told and heard. The list of questions can be supplemented.

ON PERSONAL MATTERS
ON THE PAST AND THE PRESENT

ON THE MEMORIAL
ON THE BABYN YAR
The list of questions can be supplemented and adapted to the area where the participant is from. Choose and browse topics by tag or by questions that interest you.
