Volyn OST - a project dedicated to the memory of Volyn ostarbeiters (German Ostarbeiter - a worker from the east). Our team manages the searches and publications of letters written by Volyn residents from their workplaces to their relatives. On the first stage we have started processing the R-409 fund in the State Archive of the Volyn region (Lutsk). This fund contains about one thousand letters that did not reach the recipients.
Also, publications about Volyn ostarbeiters are highlighted as a separate category "Volyn OST" in our blog. There you will find lists of exported people, their memories about work and some personal stories, etc.
You can freely download photocopies posted on our website for personal use. Any use of photocopies for commercial purposes is not permitted. Use for publications on social networks, media pages, print media is permitted by sharing the link to our site.
