The Unissued Diplomas exhibition originally began in Ukraine and is now available at over 45 universities across the world, including at Western.
Madeleine Spezowka of Western’s Ukrainian Students’ Association says it features diplomas for 36 students who lost their lives.
“It goes over their age, when they were killed, what they were studying and when they would’ve graduated.”
According to its website, Unissued Diplomas was created “to remind the world about the ongoing war and the price Ukrainians pay daily in their fight for freedom.”
The exhibition at Western University is on display at Weldon Library and will be available until the end of June.
The diplomas are also available for viewing on the Unused Diplomas website.
