The State Committee on Archives of Ukraine has been cooperating with the Unites States Holocaust Memorial Museum since 2000. They entered into a Cooperation Contract on September 13, 2000.

The primary mission of this cooperation is:

In 2004 beneficial cooperation between the State Archives of Ukraine and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum got a new impulse. Today such institutions as the Central State Historical Archive of Ukraine (Lviv), the State Archive in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, state archives of Vinnytsya, Transcarpathian, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, Chernivtsi oblasts are reliable partners of the Museum. Hopefully, in 2005 the number of archives interested in mutually beneficial partnership is to increase. In particular, today the Museum's proposition for cooperation is being considered by the management of the State Archive of Khmelnytsky Oblast.

Since the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has changed its status and in connection with the amendments of the archival legislation of Ukraine, the State Committee on Archives of Ukraine and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have agreed to revise and renew the Contract.
