    Recently badam period before the war ( a rather międzywojenny ) Drohobycz region and Truskawca and unfortunately there are many human crimes everywhere.
    The Worst, that usually suffer people, who wanted to do something good, who were the intelligence and had only good intentions.

    Difficult times of change and social revolution, not everyone who managed to survive.

    The sublime goal to link nationalities that once lived in good harmony. Divide and rule, unfortunately, is more often used tool.
