|WikiProject Biography||(Rated Stub-class)|
The article currently reads:
"According the historians O.Kucheruk and Z.Knysh Yary was of partilineal Czech and matrilineal Hungarian-Jewish descent[page needed](Polish rather than Hungarian (maiden name "Pollack") according to Patrylyak).[not in citation given]. Yary's Jewish descent was affirmed by the historian Z.Knysh, but denied by P.Mirchuk who affirmed that Yary was not Jewish, but was denounced as such by his enemies in OUN-M, and Knysh himself was Yary's personal enemy."
I have read Patrylyak (http://www.history.org.ua/LiberUA/Book/Patr/10.pdf) and he doesn't support the theory that Yary's mother was Jewish. He writes: "Його батько був австрійським офіцером, за національністю чехом, мати - полькою (дівоче прізвище Поллак)." "His mother was a Pole by ethnicity"
Moreover, I have very strong reasons to suspect that Kucheruk in his book says the same thing, even though this book is not available anywhere on the internet. How did it happen that this Wiki article began to claim that Kucheruk's book says that Yary's mother was Jewish? Who invented this claim and how did he explain it? Has any of the contributors to this article ever seen Kucheruk's book at all? If so - why is there not even a page number given? —Preceding unsigned comment added by OstapBender1900 (talk • contribs) 08:59, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
