Volhynia 1943: how to teach about?

The year 2013 was the 70th anniversary of the massacres of Volhynia.

That's why the Polish Radio, the 3rd programme (Klub Trójki) organised the discussion "Volhynia 1943: how to teach about it?" ("Wołyń 1943: jak o tym uczyć?") on June, 14 (2012) I took part on it. The discussion consider the massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia in 1943-44, committed by Ukrainian Insurgent Army.
Monument in memory of polish citizens of Janowa Dolina in Volhynia murdered by Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) on 22-23 of April 1943 (Pomnik Polaków zmordowanych w Janowej Dolinie na Wołyniu przez UPA 22-23 kwietnia 1943), July 2007, Author: Paweł Duński

Actually just one person spoke about the teaching and all the others wanted to discuss what happened, how to speak about it and how many Polish people know anything about it. It's a pity, that the Ukrainian side was represented by only one person, Piotr Tyma, the president of the Association of Ukrainians in Poland (Związek Ukraińców w Polsce).
