About the Basilian priest from Ukraine Josaphat Kaminski definitely knows something Mr. Josef Svoboda, professor Emeritus at University of Toronto, he was with him locked in a communist prison in the priestly division in Leopoldov.
Mr. Svoboda once said: "You can be a Christian intellectual, but can also be Christian believers. There is a difference. Was in jail with basilian priest from Ukraine Josaphat Kaminski, and he always spoke of believers priests. ....He said: Goal is but Christianity, which penetrates to the heart. "

Thank you for the reply.
I am hoping to find his family. I believe they also lived
in Chystohorb(some of them) and also went to
Praha or area.
In the near future we are going to put a monument in the
village of Chystohorb on the site where the church once stood.
I will put Father Kaminskis name on this.
