Pyzh cover Simeon Pyzh’s 1938 “A Short History of Carpathian Rus'”
Higganum, CT [Carpathian Institute, 2016], $20.
In this short book, originally published just before the Second World War, Simeon Pyzh, a scholar of Carpathian Rus’, forthrightly presents 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, and this new translation makes them more accessible than ever to the English-language reader.

Also included are a new biography of the author and the entire original 1938 text.

Bortne covers New! Bogdan Horbal, Бортне – село з каміня (Bortne: A Village of Stone).

Carpathian Institute, 2017. Hardcover, two volumes.

This massive work (1244 pages in two volumes, with full color throughout) is surely the definitive history of Bortne (Polish: Bartne), a Lemko village located in what is now southeastern Poland. Dating back to at least the last quarter of the 16th century, the village covered almost twenty square kilometers and at its peak was home to more than a thousand people, Lemkos, Jews and Gypsies.

Using historical research as well as memoirs, historical prose and even poetry, the book traces Bortne’s religious, political, economic and cultural development, paying special attention to pivotal historical events like emigration to America as well as the forced resettlements of the 1940s. The stone-mason industry, which once made the village famous, is another major focus. Also included is a biographical dictionary of accomplished individuals who were either born in or at some point lived in Bortne.

The book is richly illustrated and includes 50 tables, some of which list hundreds of names. Along with original research by Bogdan Horbal, the book also contains works by several other authors.

The text is mostly in the Lemko language, with some chapters in Polish and one in Ukrainian. The many illustrations and the wealth of reference material will be of interest to readers of any language.

$185.00, free shipping. Or only $148.00 for Lemko Association members.
