"These are the unique archives, part of which was classified for a long time, will be classified for the first time within the Names project", reads the message.
The digitized documents will appear on the online platform of the Names, which is supposed to appear in autumn, and on the website of the State Archive of Kyiv region.
The documents include the card index of labor registration cards of Kyiv and the card index of artists living in Kyiv in 1941-1943, and other documents of the occupant authorities of various levels.
Anna Furman, the chairperson of the Names project said that the process of digitizing took a lot of time and efforts. "Now, the researchers, the scientists, all interested persons can enrich their expertise in the genealogy and find out more about their relatives", Furman said.
Director of the State Archive of Kyiv region Sofia Kameneva added that the documents of German authorities were recovered and collected by archivists after the Nazis left Kyiv. However, the Soviet papers of this period were more difficult to recover, as they were classified for a while. The access to these documents was denied for some time - even after Ukraine gained independence in 1991.
