The article analyzes the media content of the camp the Newspaper «Rozsvit», which concerned the circumstances of the out-of-camp life and life of Ukrainian prisoners from the camp Rastatt (Germany), sent to work as part of work teams. The aim of the research is to study the peculiarities of the process of retransmission of thoughts and aspirations of the captured Ukrainians of the mentioned camp on the pages of the newspaper «Rozsvit» in 1916-1917. The historical method, source analysis and synthesis were used to effectively achieve the goal. The study found that the magazine effectively served as a communicator between the camp and the work teams. Regular acquaintance with the materials of the newspaper, which came to the work teams through the activities of «men of trust», was an important part of the short evening leisure of prisoners, satisfying their need for news. «Rozsvit's» editorial office corresponded with Ukrainian activists in workers' teams and regularly informed its readers about the achievements of the national circles and organizations founded in them. With its publications, the newspaper had a powerful influence on the formation of the national and political worldview of those prisoners, who were part of the working teams, serving for them almost the only «window» into the world of politics, public life, agriculture and art. «Rozsvit» regularly reported on donations made to prisoners for charitable purposes, thus demonstrating their high level of civic and national identity. The novelty of the study lies in the introduction into scientific circulation of an array of sources on the specifics of the functioning of the community of captured Ukrainian soldiers in the camp Rastatt in the period.
