      Website about Destruction of Ukrainian Orthodox Churches in Kholm and
      Pidliashshia Regions Created

      Lublin—This year, the 70th anniversary of the destruction of Orthodox
      churches in Kholm and Southern Pidliashshia regions by Polish
      authorities is marked. For two months in 1938, 127 Orthodox churches
      were disassembled within the framework of the so-called polonization-
      revindication action. To present the events of that time, the Lublin
      and Kholm Orthodox Eparchy created a website called The Destruction
      of Orthodox Churches in Kholm and Southern Pidliashshia regions.

      The new website contains information about the course of the event of
      destruction and about the position of Ukrainians in Poland. One can
      get acquainted there with recollections of witnesses, press
      publications of that time, historians' thoughts and also one can view
      a number of unique photos from that time.

      According to the initiators, that tragic page in the history of
      Polish-Ukrainian relations of the 20th c. is one of the keys to
      understanding later Polish-Ukrainian conflicts, especially, during
      WWII.
