|invasion of Poland by the Soviet Union|
|Country||Second Polish Republic|
Before the 1939 Nazi German and Soviet invasions of Poland Kurdybań Warkowicki or Kurdyban–Warkowicki was a village in Wołyń Voivodeship (1921–1939) near the town of Warkowicze (Ukrainian: Варковичi) in Dubno County, in the eastern part of the Second Polish Republic (now Ukraine).
The village was a site of an OUN-UPA ethnic cleansing operation against the Polish civilians by the Ukrainian Military Group No. 02 called the "Bohun" during the wave of massacres of Poles in Volhynia between 1942 and 1945. The Polish self-defence unit managed to hold its position there until the arrival of the Red Army in 1944. The witnesses consider such survival remarkable with no German outposts and no Polish partisans in its vicinity.
Most Polish self-defence units across the province fell — unable to defend the population against the genocide. Kurdybań Warkowicki was one of the only a handful of surviving units, among them: Młynów, Lubomirka, Klewań, Rokitno, Budki Snowidowickie and Osty.
