Biographical / Historical

The Union was first founded as the Union of Ukrainian Student Organizations in Germany and Danzig (SUSOND) in Berlin in August 1924. It served as an umbrella organization for six student organizations in Berlin, Danzig, and Königsberg. As its membership decline over the next decade, the organization accepted in 1938 the Sich student societies in Vienna and Graz, Austria, and in 1939 the Ukrainian Academic Hromada in Prague. The union was renamed the Nationalist Organization of Ukrainian Students in Germany (NOUS) in 1941. Centered in Berlin, NOUS coordinated the activities of its branches in Central Europe (1941-1945) and Ukrainian émigré student societies located primarily in Vienna, Graz, Prague, Berlin, Breslau, Danzig, and Leipzig. The organization changed its name from Nationalist to National in 1945, and was reorganized as the Union of Ukrainian Student Associations in Germany (SUSON) in December 1949 when the headquarters of the Central Union of Ukrainian Students (TseSUS) moved from Munich to Paris. SUSON became the central Ukrainian student organization in Germany and supported the work of its many member student associations.


Organized in five series:

Scope and Contents

The records of SUSON are comprised of correspondence, minutes, student questionnaires, and publications. The bulk of this sub-collection Ukrainian Student Movement Archive contains documents from the Ukrainian émigré student societies and branches of NOUS and SUSON. These societies or student clubs were based in the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation (UNRRA) and International Refugee Organization camps, with the main center of émigré student activity being Munich which served at its height nearly 800 students. Other student clubs in Germany were based in cities such as, among many others, Augsburg, Freiburg, Hannover, Karlsruhe, and Mittenwald. SUSON was also made up of eleven student organizations in Austria and Germany. The records hold material from organizations such as the Ukrainian Student Association in Innsbruck, the Representation of Ukrainian Students in the British Zone, Germany, and the Representation of Ukrainian Student Societies in Austria (PUSTA). Publications include the official bulletin of the organization Biuleten NOUS-a and Biuleten SUSON-u, as well as the journal Student of the Ukrainian student clubs in Munich, among other titles.
