Thanks to modern technology, languages, ethnic films and historical discoveries can all be permanently preserved.

Now Ukraine’s cultural heritage is under threat. That’s why a Viennese organisation has joined forces with American educational institutions to store at-risk information on a central, secure server.

A programme helps find documents, photographs, songs, cutting patterns, and films from Ukraine on local online portals so that they can be downloaded.

In addition, 1300 volunteers are scouring the web in search of links missed by the programme. So far some 20 terabytes of data have been saved.

On account of its fast growing size, the server has already gained several high-profile sponsors. This also allows smaller, regional museums to preserve their digital treasures.

Cultural protection.
