KOROLOWKA, WESTERN UKRAINE, PRIEST'S GROTTO CAVE: HOLOCAUST UKRAINE; Q&A: "THE DARKEST DAYS"
In the spring of 1944, a group of 38 Ukrainian Jews emerged weak and jaundiced from a cave [in Western Ukraine] they'd used for nearly a year to escape the horrors of the Holocaust. Nearly fifty years later, one caver began his quest to bring their story of survival to life. Caver Chris Nicola talks about uncovering a heroic tale of Holocaust survival.

LVIV TRIP "UKRAINE: WEEKEND TO REMEMBER
Lviv is still like a children's picture book, says Juliet Clough, despite the modern age creeping into the rest of Ukraine. At Cafe Virmanka the Armenian proprietess read our coffee grounds: "Lots of travel," she said; "volcanic change"; something obscure about a princess. It sounded more like a forecast for the sleeping beauty that is Lviv.
