Ukrainian Pamphlets from Central and Western Europe

Zhyvotko's Ostrohozhyna, published in Prague, 1942

 Located in the Slavic Collection’s closed stacks, these mostly Ukrainian language publications were published in Central and Western Europe. They span from the early 1900s to the early 1980s, and consist of small-sized booklets from various private printing houses. The content of these publications include: republished works by such notable writers as Ivan Franko, Mykola Hohol’, Taras Shevchenko,  Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and Volodymyr Vynnychenko; political and economic treaties; and original novellas. The collection encompasses nearly 150 such publications.
