The article discusses the complex interaction between national mobilization during World War I and children. The focus is on children and teenagers living in Kyiv, a border region of the Russian Empire, who were amongst the first children to be affected by the war. The purpose of the study is to examine the ways in which children and adolescents were integrated into the military culture in the city during the general mobilization period and the very nature of their direct participation in this war. The materials of contemporary pedagogical research will be used to reconstruct children’s experiences during that time as well as their emotional response to military culture in the first two years of the war.
