From a poem by Яр Славутич:

Нами снили поліські пущі,
Гайдамацькі яри в полях.
І прийшли ми до них, живущі,
Подолавши пекельний шлях.

Повернулися із Берези,
З-за Байкалу, із Соловків,
Багатющі, неначе крези,
Гнівом часу, жалем віків.

What is Береза?

1 Answer 1


I think that the word "Береза" here is the name of the prizon camp "Bereza Kartuska". Also, we can see here the word "Соловки" ("із Соловків"), which is the name of Solovki prison camp.

  • This answer seems very viable. However, to make it scientifically correct, one should probably find other uses of this word in this context. Commented Dec 15, 2018 at 18:58
