Sunny Moraine wrote post about the history uncovered which motivated writing a story for Long Hidden:
Long Hidden and my own uncovered story
“…my husband’s paternal family originally hails from a small village on the Polish-Ukrainian border. It was predominantly populated by members of an ethnic group called the Lemko, a people who have long been inhabitants of the Carpathian Mountains. They were farmers and herdsmen with deep ties to their land, and like many minority ethnic groups of that kind they were – and are – fiercely proud and protective of their culture.
Nothing remains of that village now.”
