Polish Genocide by Ukrainian Nationalists in/around Lublin Voivodeship in 1939–1947

Stanisław Jastrzębski is a survivor of the World War II massacres of Poles in Volhynia, during which he eye-witnessed the UPA murder of his own family.

The result of years of his historical research based on official documents and witness accounts is Jastrzębski's 2007 book (right) entitled Ludobójstwo nacjonalistów ukraińskich na Polakach na Lubelszczyźnie w latach 1939-1947 (English: Polish Genocide by Ukrainian Nationalists in/around Lublin Voivodeship in 1939–1947), revealing the extent of atrocities committed against Polish civilians in Kresy by bands of Ukrainian nationalists. The book makes use of materials collected by the Society for the Remembrance of Victims of Genocide Committed by the Ukrainian Nationalists (Polish: Stowarzyszenie Upamiętnienia Ofiar Zbrodni Ukraińskich Nacjonalistów) and the Institute of National Remembrance.

In his most recent, 2008 book, Samoobrona Polaków na Kresach Południowo-Wschodnich II RP w latach 1939-1946 (English: Polish Self-defence in Southeastern Kresy Region of Polish Second Republic), Jastrzębski conducts an in-depth study of the Polish attempts at self-defence against UPA pacification operations and gives a detailed account of the defence units' activities during Nazi German and Soviet occupation. The book is based on documents and narratives collected by the Polish Institute of National Remembrance.
