About The Book
З мого життя (From My Life) are the memoirs of Kyrylo Tryliovsky (1864–1941), remembered chiefly as the founder of the Sich Society in the Hutsul and Pokutia regions of western Ukraine, before the First World War. This movement later gave birth to the Ukrainian Sich Riflemen, who fought for Ukraine's independence during the war. This was far from his only accomplishment on behalf of the Ukrainian national movement. Tryliovsky was one of the most active and popular leaders of the Ruthenian-Ukrainian Radical Party.
He was elected a deputy to the Austro-Hungarian parliament, and became a member of the General Ukrainian Council in 1914. In 1918 he was a member of the Ukrainian National Rada. Tryliovsky began writing his memoirs in the last years of his life, during the Soviet occupation of 1939. Although he was unable to complete the memoirs, they were preserved by his son, Petro. His grandson, Bohdan Trylowsky arranged for their publication.
