March 2024 SGGEE Journal
We have two articles this month written by SGGEE Members, Alex Brzhezytskyi and Dr. Jan Musekamp. Many of you know of Alex from his work with Volhynian Village Adventure Tours and the research he did within the Zhitomir Archives. Alex provides a narrative of his personal and family tribulations during the last few years following the Russian invasion in 2022. We wish Alex and his family all the best. Dr. Muskamp, a visiting associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of History and European Studies Center, provides a scholarly overview of Volhynian migration over the years.
