Majdan Sieniawski

From Wikipedia:

Majdan Sieniawski (Polish pronunciation: [ˈmajdan ɕɛˈɲafskʲi]; Ukrainian: Майдан Сінявський, translit. Maidan Siniavs’kyi) is a village located in the administrative district of Gmina Adamówka, within Przeworsk County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship, in south-eastern Poland.

  • The village was founded in the 17th century. Initially it was called Dobropole, however, it was soon renamed to Majdan Sieniawski after its founder, nobleman Mikołaj Sieniawski from Granów.
  • The initial settlers were Tatar prisoners of war who cleared forests and operated the tar plant.
  • In 1937, during a peasant strike, clashes with the state police took place in the village, during which 15 peasants were killed. On June 29, 1944, the servant of God, Julia Buniowska, shot to death by a Vlasovite, died a heroic death.
  • In 1714, a Roman Catholic parish was established and a wooden church was built. At that time, the village already had a wooden Greek-Catholic church of St. Michael, who was a parish priest. [1]
  • The central part of the village was called Komora (apparently, because of the presence of a filvark), there were also the hamlets (farms) of Bukivets, Dobropole, Kanivka, Osivka, and Zakostellya.
  • The Poles of Sinyavskyi Maidan terrorized, killed and robbed local Ukrainians and from neighboring villages. In 1945, part of the Ukrainian community was evicted to the Ternopil region of the Ukrainian SSR — 52 people (9 families). Ukrainians could not resist anti-Ukrainian terror after the Second World War. The rest of the Ukrainians were ethnically cleansed in 1947 during Operation "Visula" and were deported to post-German lands in the western and northern parts of the Polish state, which belonged to Germany until 1945.
