When your classroom turns into a battlefield, your major becomes bravery.
This exhibition was created to remind the world about the ongoing war and the price Ukrainians pay daily in their fight for freedom. Unissued Diplomas honors the memory of Ukrainian students who will never graduate because their lives were taken by the Russian invasion. The Unissued Diplomas exhibition uncovers the stories of 36 Ukrainian students killed in the war. It will be held in 45+ universities and many other locations worldwide beginning February 24, which marks the anniversary of the day all Ukraine woke up from explosions.
They used to spend their days in study halls. They had favorite classes and those they dreaded weekly. And how scary it was for them to even think of failing a midterm. But after February 24, everything changed for Ukrainian students. Classrooms turned into bomb shelters and battlefields. Fear changed its course and bravery took control. Now, diplomas of some will never be issued because Russia took the lives of their to-be owners in its attempt to take Ukraine's freedom.
