Photographer's Note

A Polish cemetery was opened near Rivne in northwestern Ukraine on 6 November, 2003. The cemetery is located at the site where in 3 March 1943 a unit of Nazis and Ukrainian police collaborators razen the Polish village of Borszczowka and murdered about 250 inhabitants. Those who managed to escape the slaughter included the father of Poland's first lady, Jolanta Kwasniewska. Two of Kwasniewska's relatives were killed and buried in a collective grave near Borszczowka in 1943.
My father and sister were killed and buried there, too.
