Title of Research:

"Greek Catholic Ukrainian Galicians and Carpatho-Ukrainians in the Context of Interwar Breakdown and Recomposition of National Entities (1919-1938/39)"


This project will analyze the opposed policies of nationalities enacted by the governments of Warsaw and Prague, and will serve as the basis of a monograph on the condition of Western Ukrainian Greek-Catholics in interwar Poland and Czechoslovakia between 1919 and 1938/9. Based on largely unpublished sources from the archives of the Vatican, Warsaw, Prague, and supplemented by the collections of HURI, this research aims to understand how Greek Catholics managed to preserve their cultural and ritual identity.
