Na rubieżach polsko-ukraińskich. Parafia greckokatolicka w Oleszycach w latach międzywojennych
On the Polish-Ukrainian frontier. The Greek Catholic parish in Oleszyce between the wars
Languages of publication
The article presents the history of the Greek Catholic parish in Oleszyce in the Lubaczów district between the two wars. Analyzing events, processes and attitudes in this small, seemingly unimportant, town, the author places them in a broader context of Polish-Ukrainian rivalry in Eastern Galicia between 1918 and 1939. The conflict between the Greek Catholic parishioners from Oleszyce and their priest Father Antoni Makar reflects the many problems of the people from the Przemyśl eparchy in the interwar period. The conflict illustrates the important role of Greek Catholic priests as leaders of local communities, especially in the fields of nationality and culture.
