From Wikipedia:

Dobra [ˈdɔbra] (Ukrainian: Добра, Dobra) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Sieniawa, within Przeworsk County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship, in south-eastern Poland.

  • The first mention in the sources appears in 1470, during the establishment of the Jarosław Estate.
  • In 1594, part of her Jarosław property was given to Katarzyna Sieniawska, who in 1593 was married to Adam Hieronim Sieniawski. The last of the Sieniawski family was Zofia Czartoryska née Sieniawski, who in 1731 was married to August Aleksander Czartoryski, and from that time the Czartoryski estate became the owners of the Sieniawski estate. In 1897, the Sieniawska Czartoryski Estate was established, which existed until the land reform in 1944.
  • According to W. Kubijowicz, in 1939 Dobra had 2,530 inhabitants (including: 1,880 Ukrainians, 630 Poles and 20 Jews). In the years 1945-1946, the Ukrainian population was, on the initiative of Poles who came from Volhynia, repeatedly attacked by partisans from Sieniawa and Wylewa, who carried out numerous murders and robberies.
  • On January 19, 1946, the village was attacked by the Polish armed detachment "Volynyak". "Volynyak" with 22 soldiers murdered 33 Ukrainians aged from 1 to 72. There is a monument to the victims of "Volynyak" at the cemetery with the inscription: "Residents of Dobra murdered on January 19, 1946 rest here." and 27 names with age. 6 of them are under 12 years old, 14 are over 50, 12 are women and there is no man under 57 years of age.[1]
  • The village was the seat of Kuszcz Dobrzański and the SKW self-defense unit was active. On June 17, 1945, a group of 150 people consisting of the MO and partisans attacked Dobra, burned 270 houses, demolished the church and murdered 22 people. In 1945, 706 people from 160 houses were displaced to Ukraine. The remaining residents were attacked in 1945–1946 by the Polish Army, UB and partisans. In 1947, the next inhabitants were displaced during Operation Vistula to the Recovered Territories.
  • On April 3, 1940, the RNC of Ukraine decided to evict the village and the residents were resettled in the Izmail Oblast. Archival data show that during 1945, 706 Ukrainians (160 families) were evicted from Dobra to the villages of Ternopil, Drohobytsk, Odesa, and Stanislav regions.
