The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington sent four of its researchers and scholars to Cleveland on May 19-20, 2016 to see the WW II and post-war Displaced Persons Camp collections at the Ukrainian Museum-Archives. The Holocaust Museum will be signing an agreement with Ukrainian archival institutions.

The Ukrainian Museum-Archives (UMA) was founded in 1952 and is dedicated to collecting literature, recordings, artifacts and other items that represent Ukrainian culture, Ukrainian immigration to America, and the history of Ukrainians in Cleveland.
