Abstract

The article reproduces the history of the publication of the prison community of Ukrainian warriors-prisoners in Salzwedel “Vilne Slovo” (“Free Word”) in 1916-1917, which regularly informed the prisoners about events in the world and Ukraine, the situation on the fronts of the First World War, includes information on news of social and cultural life in the occupied Ukrainian lands. The newspaper succeeded in significantly influencing the formation of the national consciousness of the prisoners, with its materials, it managed to raise thousands of conscious Ukrainians in the camp of Salzwedel. Also, the “Vilne Slovo” successfully performed the mission of communication between the camp Ukrainian community and its members, who temporarily left the camp as part of the working teams. In the relatively short time of its existence, the prison magazine of captive Ukrainians in Salzwedel has become an authoritative Ukrainian foreign publication, which in the conditions of war and further revolutionary upheavals in Germany carried the word of support and solace for the prisoners, inspiring their hopes of returning home, proclaiming them a belief in the state selfaffirmation of Ukraine and the need for its armed defense against the invasion of the Bolshevik Russia.
