Books[edit]

Jastrzębski's 2007 book entitled Ludobójstwo nacjonalistów ukraińskich na Polakach na Lubelszczyźnie w latach 1939-1947 (English: Polish Genocide by Ukrainian Nationalists in/around Lublin Voivodeship in 1939–1947) revealed the extent of atrocities committed against Polish civilians in Kresy by bands of Ukrainian nationalists. The book made use of materials collected by the Society for the Remembrance of Victims of Genocide Committed by the Ukrainian Nationalists (Polish: Stowarzyszenie Upamiętnienia Ofiar Zbrodni Ukraińskich Nacjonalistów) and the Institute of National Remembrance.[3]

In his 2008 book Samoobrona Polaków na Kresach Południowo-Wschodnich II RP w latach 1939-1946 (English: Polish Self-defence in Southeastern Kresy Region of Polish Second Republic), Jastrzębski conducted an in-depth study of the Polish attempts at self-defence against UPA pacification operations and gave a detailed account of the defence units' activities during Nazi German and Soviet occupation. The book was based on documents and narratives collected by the Polish Institute of National Remembrance.[4]
