As an institution devoted to the development of Ukrainian scholarship and post-secondary studies free of the political influences dominating Ukraine, it was originally founded in 1921 in Vienna, Austria, but moved to Prague, Czechoslovakia, later that year due to low enrollment and to draw support from the larger Ukrainian population in Prague and favorable reception by the Czechoslovak government. The Ukrainian Free University was given the rights to use the resources of the Charles University in Prague. After the end of World War II and the liquidation of the Ukrainian Free University by the Soviet authorities in Czechoslovakia, the majority of the faculty fled to Germany, and the Ukrainian Free University was re-established in Munich in 1946. It continues to function as a private university. ("Encyclopedia of Ukraine," University of Toronto Press, 1984).
