Ukraine SIG #Ukraine the "Stans" #ukraine

A few years ago on a trip to areas of Ukraine that were formerly
Galicia, I spoke to a man in Stryy and another in Lviv, each of whom
had fled east (one I recall had gone to Uzbekistan), when the
Germans were approaching in order to escape the Nazis. At the end of
the war they returned to their birthplaces and were among a handful
from their towns who had survived. Most of those who did not flee
east did not survive the war.

There are many stories to be heard and much to learn.
