HABKIVTSI

1833

Nativity of the B. V. Mary

HABKIVTSI
The Ukrainian population of Habkivtsi was forcefully evacuated by Polish authorities and the tserkva was dismantled and even its foundation stones were piled up in a heap. The cross from the tserkva we found nailed to an ancient linden tree. To me, this cross symbolizes the faith of Ukrainians in present day Poland.
