Dovhyi Voinyliv (Ukrainian: Довґий Войнилів, Polish: Dołha Wojniłowska) is a village in Kaluskyi Raion, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Ukraine. Before World War II the village was part of Kałusz county in Stanisławów Voivodship, Second Republic of Poland.[1]

World War II[edit]

During the wave of massacres of Poles in Volhynia between 1942 and 1945, Dołha Wojniłowska was one of hundreds of sites of mass murder of Polish civilians by OUN-UPA.[2] On April 2, 1944 local Catholic priest, Rev. Błażej Czuba,[3] was burned alive in his parish with 85 people. Soon after, on the first night of Easter, April 9–10, 1944, additional 64 people were massacred there during an OUN-UPA murderous raid overlooked by SS-Galizien. The attack was accompanied by the burning and razing of farmhouses, schools and churches.[4]
