Raised as a patriotic Pole, Stanislav Bartminski became a priest in order to save his nation from Communist rule. But when he took charge of a small parish to organize support against Soviet occupation, he encountered such sectarian hatred in his own parish that his life took another course. Since then he has made it his mission to restore the multicultural heritage of his homeland by leading a movement to restore Jewish and Ukrainian cemeteries, as well as synagogues and Ukrainian churches.
The characters in our film have such amazing stories that only a portion of what we filmed was able to fit into a 90-minute documentary. Here are some of Father Stanislav Bartminski’s untold stories.
