  • Volodymyr Matviiovych KHYZHNIAK's book Liubar written in Ukrainian, published in Kyiv, 1972 . US copies held at Columbia University and Harvard University. Appears to be non-fiction about a man called "Liubar" who is a fisherman and explores nature circa mid-twentieth century after WWII. The origin of his name and whether he is ever in our shtetl of Lyubar is unclear from a cursory review of the book. Not a Jewish story.
