In Uzhgorod the new book by Havrosh was presented
Today, October 18, in Uzhgorod the new book "Wandering People" by the known Transcarpathian writer Oleksandr Havrosh was presented. The book is based upon the story of life of Rusnak community in Serbia, namely in the autonomous province of Vojvodina. The migrants from the present territory of Ukraine arrived there for the first time 260 years ago. There have been several waves of such migration. Today, in Serbia there are 15,000 Rusnaks, who have their own literary norm, schools and books. "Rusnak dialect in Serbia is as significantly different from the Transcarpathian as the Transcarpathian from the Galician, for example," - the writer said during the presentation of the new work.
Oleksandr Havrosh called his new brainchild "a complex project", "This is truly a project, this book can be safely called that. This is not a folio in "travel notes" format. A very large part of the book is a history."
Famous Transcarpathian ethnologist Mykhailo Tyvodar during the presentation said that "Wandering People" is a modern approach to the Rusyns problem. "The book is written very skillfully. Author's impressions, notes, visions are very well intertwined with the historical facts and data", - said Mr. Tyvodar.
