About Lemkos

Hello Friends.

The ninth story of the Stories Our Grandparents Haven’t Told project is about the fate of Lemkos. They represent an extremely colorful ethnic group coming from the Carpathian Mountains.

I find their culture, traditions, dialect, and lifestyle fascinating. However, it has not been easy to preserve them due to the events that took place at the time of WWII and after. 

This is the story of a witness, Mrs. Stefa, one of about 125 thousand Lemkos who were cut off their root. 

You’re welcome to join my mailing list to receive updates on further posts. I also invite you to join me on Patreon to see other stories and help me keep the project going.
