Back in 1938, longtime Lemko Association leader Simeon Pyzh wrote a short Lemko-language history of his native region, boldly presenting his views that:
- The Slavic population of Carpathian Rus’ is autochthonous to their region— it is their original homeland!
- The appropriate language for Carpathian Rus’ is neither literary Russian, nor literary Ukrainian, but the people’s own language!
- The conflict between Russophiles and Ukrainophiles in Carpathian Rus’ was regrettable; they had been played off against each other as part of a ‘divide and rule’ strategy.
His insights remain valuable today, over seventy-five years after they were first published,
so we are glad to offer a revised translation that makes them more accessible than ever to the English-language reader.
A new biography of Dr. Pyzh and the complete original 1938 text are also included.
