In the camps of captives and interned Ukrainian soldiers who existed in several European countries (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, etc.), there were various workshops, in particular: pottery, carvings, paintings, drawing, etc.), the products of which were willingly bought by cities due to their cheapness. In addition, there were always craftsmen in the camps who, in their free time, were cut from the tree various «trinkets», which too was in demand for their skillful performance. The communication between the cities and the camps was initially carried out through civilian commandants, but soon enough acquired the character of direct contacts. The fact is that as the authorities of the countries of captivity and interned Ukrainian soldiers were actively using prisoners for labor in factories and factories, mines in the agricultural sector. In the long run, the continued coexistence of the towns and the inhabitants of the camps in some cases led to the formation of mixed families, besides, part of the prisoners, for various reasons, preferred not to return home, forming a small number of Ukrainian communities that already lived in a civilian position near the already eliminated camps. In the future, this led to the naturalization of this category of former captive Ukrainians, as well as objectively contributed to increasing their mobility, because having a higher educational level and speaking the language of the host countries; they had far greater opportunities for full adaptation.
