BONARIVKA
Yaroslav Padoch, a jurist and professor of the Ukrainian Free University, was born here. While in Bonarivka, we talked to an old lady living in a thatched roof house. She described the expulsion of Ukrainians and the settlement of Poles in the village. The Polish government brought her and her husband here in 1947. The village was completely abandoned and they were allowed to choose a house and lay claim to as much land as they felt they needed. The tserkva is used by the Polish Roman Catholics.
