"Last Journey Home"
October 2, 2010 /4.00 pm
Center for Urban History, Lviv
Screening of the film "Last Journey Home" by director Roman Kryk took place.
The heroes of the film are three residents of Kobylnytsia Voloska, who in 1947 were transported to Mazura within the operation "Visla." Others who were deported (residents of Venhozhevo and its surroundings) will also appear. They reflect on whether Ukrainians in Poland have a chance of surviving as a national minority, and also if Aktsia "Visla" was a success if one takes into consideration that its main goal was the Polonization of deported Ukrainians. Historians Grzegorz Motyka from the Polish Academy of Sciences and Mykhailo Kozak from Peremyshl reflect on this topic.
Filming took place in July 2010 in Kobylnytsia Voloska, Warsaw, Chesanova, Stary and Novy Lublinets, Velyky Ochi, Kniazy, Mlyny, Narol, Venhozhevo, Hizhytska, Kruklanki, Okovizhni and Pozezdzha.
The full version of the film "Last Journey Home" was presented for the first time in Kyiv on 21 September 2010.
