The beautiful Carpathian Mountains have not only provided beautiful scenery, it has been a place of refuge for Ukrainians throughout generations during wartime.

“The Carpathians have hidden and sheltered people for centuries. Jews fleeing pogroms. Ukrainians fleeing Stalin’s Red Army. Locals here descend from those previous waves.”
