It must be recalled that the period in question went down in world history under the name “Volyn Massacre”. It was a terrible and bloody episode of the twentieth century. According to various estimates, from 50 thousand to 500 thousand Poles were savagely killed or tortured in a variety of ways. The exact amount still cannot be calculated. July 11 in Poland is considered "National Day in Remembrance of the Victims of the Ukrainian Nationalists of the Genocide of Citizens of the Second Polish Commonwealth of Poland."
