He lived. He was murdered. He left a legacy.

Anna Maria Kowcz-Baran, daughter of Blessed Emilian, was determined to piece together the last months of her father's life. During the last ten years of her own life, she worked with much determination to gather personal family papers and recollections, as well as from those who knew Fr. Emilian throughout his life, including his final days in Majdanek. The book, For God's Truth and Human Rights published in Ukrainian in 1994, was Anna Maria's final gift to her father.

The introduction section from the book is posted here, in Adobe Acrobat format.

An introduction by the translators Emil and Olena Baran:

"The original publication of God’s Truth and Human Rights was the result of growing interest in the life of Father Emilian Kowcz and of the dedicated commitment of his daughter, Anna Maria Kowcz-Baran, to putting his compelling story into print. With his Beatification in 2002 by Pope John-Paul II during the Pope’s visit to Ukraine, the recognition accorded to him by the Ukrainian Jewish community and the rapid renewal of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in an independent Ukraine, interest in his life and times has once again increased, well beyond the limits of Ukrainian language readers, the original language of her publication. It is for this reason and our own deep personal respect for the life of Father Kowcz that we undertook to translate, edit and publish God’s Truth and Human Rights."
