Languages of publication
This article presents an account of an anonymous officer of the Ukrainian Galician Army (UGA) from the POW camp in Pikulice at the end of 1919 and the beginning of 1920. The author focuses on discussing the living conditions in the camp, particularly from the point of view of hygiene. The camp was swept by typhus and dysentery epidemics, which killed several hundred soldiers and officers of the UGA. The account was written in Ukrainian, probably for the Ukrainian Civic Committee in Lviv and also in order to preserve the memory of the hardships of life in captivity.
