They range in length from several hand-written pages to typescripts of several hundred pages. The memoirists describe the following topics in their memoirs: exile, German work camps, conditions under the Soviet regime, famine, sporadic mentions of the Holocaust, and childhood experiences. 25 memoirs depict the Ukrainian experience of World War II. A few of the files also include photographs, newspaper clippings, supporting documents, and correspondence (although in most cases the latter consists of little more than formal letters of introduction). Most of the files are dated according to when the memoirs were received, which may not correspond with the date when they were actually written.
