—Migrations have been seen throughout ancient and modern history. This mass movement represents a last resort to hardships that people endure in their own country. Like many other peoples many Ukrainians have seen in migration the best solution to the historical context they were undergoing. Some of them chose as their new home, primarily, the region of Maramures in the North of Romania. Most of the emigrants, bought land, settled down, established families and communities and have been peacefully coexisting with the Romanian population.
—Continuation hardships, migration, new beginning, peaceful coexistence.
