    Re: the travel piece on Ukraine–Regarding Lviv: Were you aware of the fact that before WWII the city comprised almost 35% Jewish population?
    No records, mementos among the “charm” you wrote about recalling that ethnicity? I would imagine it would hold some relevance to WWII Lviv history also not mentioned! Re:the Carpathian highlands:this was onetime Ruthenia, whence many Minn.Rusins (Ruthenians) hailed with farmsteads stemming from that WWI era. And the relevant literature coming out of Ukrainian Galicia. !!!
