Pylyshenko, Wolodymyr “Mirko”
He talks about life in the Ukraine under Poland, then the Soviet Union, then the Nazis before and during WWII. He describes his parents and their family backgrounds, fleeing the Soviets, being sent off alone by his parents at age eleven, then being reunited with his parents.  His brother lives and dies in Siberia without any contact with his family.  Mirko talks about life in the Displaced Persons Camps in Germany, the Boy Scouts, YMCA, and Sea Scouts, then leaving for America at age 15.

This is a blog where generations can interact.  LSA is a show where the stories can be saved for the generations of your family, for the community, and for the world.  Before they are lost forever.  Do you have a story we should hear?
