A Jewish man whose family chose to save the life of its worst enemy. An Ukrainian woman who endured the theft of her children to save her country. A Polish priest who risked everything to end the sectarian hatred that tore at his parish. They all came from Galicia where the Second World War never ended and where children grow up with the burden of fighting the battles of their grandparents.
In the epic settings of the events that changed the course of modern history, Three Stories of Galicia reveals the intimate stories of three courageous individuals who took it upon themselves to preserve the dignity of the human spirit.
