Ukraine’s Struggle for Independence 100 Years Ago, 1917–1921 commemorates the 100th anniversary of one of the most dramatic and fateful periods in Ukrainian history—the struggle for independence from 1917 to 1921—and traces the creation of the modern state of Ukraine on ethnic Ukrainian territories. The exhibition will showcase original artifacts generously loaned by institutions and individual collectors from Ukraine, Poland, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and the United States. The majority of the items will be exhibited for the first time. Among them are such rarities as the original Universal (Declaration) of the Directory announcing the unification of the Western Ukrainian National Republic Ukrainian and the National Republic into one state on January 22, 1919; the Petro Doroshenko Zaporozhian Infantry Regiment’s flag; memorabilia from key figures such as Volodymyr Vynnychenko; state papers from the UN Archives in Geneva documenting Ukraine joining the League of Nations; and state seals from the period: the Ukrainian Central Council and the Great Seal of the Ukrainian National Republic.
