About



SUCHO is a volunteer group of more than 1,300 cultural heritage professionals – librarians, archivists, researchers, programmers – working together to identify and archive at-risk sites, digital content, and data in Ukrainian cultural heritage institutions while the country is under attack. We are using a combination of technologies to crawl and archive cultural content from Ukrainian websites, including  the Browsertrix Cloud crawler developed by the Webrecorder project and the Wayback Machine of the Internet Archive.

This demo shows how we crawl Ukrainian websites using the Browsertrix Cloud crawler.

So far we have saved more than 50TB of scanned documents, artworks and many other digital materials from 5,000+ websites of Ukrainian museums, libraries and archives. Many of these websites are already offline due to damage to the servers, cyberattacks or network outages. The materials that we managed to archive before they went offline include, for example, the entire website of the State Archive of Kharkiv. You can view some of the archived materials on our website
