The book describes the life and fate of Mykhailo Diachenko – the poet, writer, underground activist and one of the leaders of the Carpathian Krai Leadership of the OUN. His various poems and stories clearly demonstrate the aims and tasks of the Ukrainian liberation movement of the mid-twentieth century. This book discloses for the first time the extraordinary measures undertaken by the Soviet secret police in its search of M. Diachenko which were kept in the Archive of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). Some of his works and little known photographs also derive from this archival source. Toronto-Lviv, 2010. Soft cover: 140 pp. Illustrations. This book was funded by TARAS NAROZHNIAK from Stoney Creek, ON, Canada.
