The city of Lwów / Lviv / Lemberg is situated 42.5 km (28 miles) from my paternal ancestral town of ‘Komarno’ Комарно, Lviv Oblast, Ukraine / The area between 1772 – 1918 was a part of The Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, also known as Galicia or Austrian Poland. Polish was the native language and predominantly inhabited by Poles, closely followed by Ruthenians and than Jews. The video is in relation to the Battle of Lemberg and the Lwów Eaglets, who were children, students and young men/women who defended their city from 1st November 1918 following the collapse of Habsburg Empire and Ukraine took the city and declared it a part of their new Ukrainian Empire. The youngest Eaglet was only 9.
