Silesian Quarterly Historical Journal “Sobótka” [Śląski Kwartalnik Historyczny „Sobótka”] has been published in Wrocław since 1946 – initially as a semiannual periodical and a yearbook with the title “Sobótka”, and since 1957 quarterly, with the current title. It is among the oldest regional scholarly journals in the field of history in Poland and a significant element of Polish humanities. “Sobótka” is considered one of the most important periodicals concerning Silesian studies, but the editorial team remains open also to material from other thematic fields. The journal serves for presentation of research on history of Central and Eastern Europe, with a special focus on Silesia and neighboring regions and countries, as well as on regional history. For several years, its publisher was the Wrocław Society of History Enthusiasts [Wrocławskie Towarzystwo Miłośników Historii], i.e. the Branch of the Polish Historical Society [Polskie Towarzystwo Historyczne]; currently, the journal is published under the auspices of the University of Wrocław.


The fates of ordinary people during war are often weaved into some kind of metastory. There are important because they constitute a part of the metastory. In the present study, based on archive material – protocols written by one of the members of so called Security Service of OUN-B, which operated in Poland until the fall of 1947 – a different approach has been adopted. The war events are a background to an attempt of an analysis of a story of a young woman from the village of Wysowa (Gorlice county). It is a story in several acts, a long story, in which we follow the protagonist to the places where she worked during the war and the tracks of her homecoming, through Czech Republic, Romania and Soviet Union – but also a shorter story of her interrogation, with a tragic, as can be assumed, finale for Zofia F
