      Just 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.
