7 REILLY, DIANA HOWANSKY. Scattered: The Forced Relocation Of Poland's Ukrainians After World War II.
University of Wisconsin Press, Madison: 2013. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Following World War II, the communist government of Poland forcibly relocated the country's Ukrainian minority by means of a Soviet-Polish population exchange and then a secretly planned action code-named Operation Vistula. In Scattered, Diana Howansky Reilly recounts these events through the experiences of three siblings caught up in the conflict, during a turbulent period when compulsory resettlement was a common political tactic used against national minorities to create homogenous states. Born in the Lemko region of southeastern Poland, Petro, Melania, and Hania Pyrtej survived World War II only to be separated by political decisions over which they had no control. Petro relocated with his wife to Soviet Ukraine during the population exchange of 1944-46, while his sisters Melania and Hania were resettled to western Poland through Operation Vistula in 1947. As the Ukrainian Insurgent Army fought resettlement, the Polish government meanwhile imprisoned suspected sympathizers within the Jaworzno concentration camp. Melania, Reilly's maternal grandmother, eventually found her way to the United States during Poland's period of liberalization in the 1960s. Drawing on oral interviews and archival research, Reilly tells a fascinating, true story that provides a bottom-up perspective and illustrates the impact of extraordinary historical events on the lives of ordinary people. Tracing the story to the present, she describes survivors' efforts to receive compensation for the destruction of their homes and communities.

12 ZAMOYSKI, ADAM. Poland: A History.
Hippocrene Books, New York: 2012. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
When Adam Zamoyski's bestselling first history of Poland, The Polish Way, was published in 1987, the country was in a state of subjugation, with most of its living culture surviving only underground or in exile. Though the election of Pope John Paul II in 1978 and the dramatic rise of the Solidarity movement in the early 1980s brought Poland to the world's attention, it was only after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989 that Poland was rejuvenated as a political entity. As Zamoyski set out to update The Polish Way, he realized the task required not so much re-writing as re-thinking the known facts as well as the assumptions of the past. The events of the last twenty years and the growth of the independent Polish state allowed him to look at Poland's past with a fresh eye. Tracing Poland's complex development from the Middle Ages to present day, Zamoyski examines the country's political, economic, and military struggles, as well as its culture, art, and richly varied society through the ages, bringing the major events and characters in Poland's history to life. Adam Zamoyski was born in New York and has spent much of his life in England, where he was educated at Oxford. His family originates from Poland, which his parents fled when it was invaded by Germany and Russia in 1939. A freelance historian with a singular command of languages, he has authored over a dozen books, including Warsaw 1920: Lenin's Failed Conquest of Europe and the bestselling 1812: Napoleon's Fatal March on Moscow. He is married to the painter Emma Sargeant and resides in England. "...excellent and authoritative...Such an extraordinary national trajectory demands an accessible and scholarly accounting. Zamoyski succeeds admirably in providing both." - The Daily Telegraph "fresh, different, and brilliantly readable...It is the perfect introduction for those who know nothing about the country, yet will also provide some positive food for thought to those who imagined they knew it all too well." - The Spectator
