12269Re: [S-R] Katarzyna Wrobel
- Jun 2, 2005Just a followup: I found a map that confirms that this Sloboda
and Cieplice (spelled Teplyci in Ukrainian) just east of Lezajsk
were majority Ukrainian villages. Just before WW2, Sloboda had a
Ukrainian population of 410 out of 440 residents, and Teplyci had
2680 out of 3630.
