Ukraine and Its Continuing Agony

Maria Dziedzan was born in Grimsby to a Ukrainian father and a Welsh mother, but the family moved to Nottingham early in her life to be closer to the large Ukrainian community in the city. Maria’s three novels, When Sorrows Come, Driven into Exile and Bread and Salt (The “My Lost Country” series) detail the harrowing difficulties of Anna, a young Ukrainian woman living through the brutality of life in Western Ukraine during the second world war. The series touches on themes of nationality, identity, displacement, and resilience – themes that sadly painfully resonate with the Ukrainian diaspora today.
