HISTORICAL SKETCH

Myron Malaniuk (1913- ) was born in Uhorci, Lviv Province, Ukraine. His education was interrupted by the outbreak of World War II, during which he was taken into forced labor in Germany, and later spent time in a German displaced persons camp. In the camp, he worked as a clerk and was active in Ukrainian church life and with the Ukrainian branch of the YMCA and YWCA. He came to the United States in 1957, where he found work in a factory. He remained active in the Ukrainian community in Chicago, Ill., especially with the Ukrainian National Museum of Chicago. He also administered the literary journal Dzvony while it was published in Chicago.
