Digital Archivists Race to Preserve Ukrainian Heritage

War disrupts and ends lives. It destroys homes and infrastructure. And as Russia continues its war in Ukraine, the cultural heritage of Ukraine is also at risk.

Some Ukrainian museum websites have gone offline as the servers hosting them lose connections or are destroyed in attacks.

They’ve been recording and archiving these websites before they go offline.
