Abstract

The article deals with the peculiarities of military-professional and general education of interned Ukrainian soldiers in the Strzałkowo camp (August 1921 – 1922). Due to this, the top political leadership and command of the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic hoped to lay the foundations for a conscious understanding of state needs and the priority of national interests. The task of establishing military-professional and general education of the military in the Strzałkowo camp was entrusted to the camp's cultural and educational department, which was to interact with similar structures of individual units. Due to the total lack of any resources for these needs in the State Center of the Ukrainian People's Republic in exile, the activities of educational centers in the Strzałkowo camp were always marked by great difficulties, as a result, the work of most educational courses and schools was irregular, which usually worsened the very quality of knowledge of the campers. But despite this situation, the initiative minority of campers managed to ensure the activities of a number of schools and educational courses, giving the rest of the internees the opportunity to fill their camp existence with constructive content. A very significant contribution to the work of most of the camp's cultural and educational centers was made by the American Charitable Organization YМСА, which spared no expense for most of the educational needs of the campers. Camp public organizations, whose members were involved in teaching work with the rest of the camp, also contributed to the intensification of educational work in Strzałkowo, and in addition made every effort to improve their own general education level. It is thanks to this combination that a large number of camp teachers were able to prepare for admission and study in higher education institutions in Poland and the Czechoslovak Republic, adapting to the conditions of emigration.
