Photograph of Ukrainian Americans in 1925

This fascinating photograph captures a significant part of what the UHEC is about: it tells the stories of Ukrainian immigration to the United States, the lives of those immigrants here, the Ukrainian American communities and organizations (both religious and secular) that they formed, and their interactions with the wider American society.

In fact, it’s so emblematic that we have been using it as the banner image on our website homepage, on Facebook, and on an actual physical banner. This video explains why we think this image is so interesting and important.
