What happened during the Russian Invasion of Galicia?

Asked 9 months ago by Anonymous

Hi, I recently learned that my great (maybe great?) grandmother and grandfather were likely Ukranian and Polish respectively, and also most likely from Galicia. I've been told quite often that the reason they emigrated to the United States was because of the Russian Revolution, but the timeline doesn't exactly seem to add up. So my question is, were there are war crimes or mass executions of Poles/Ukranians during the Russian invasion and occupation of Galicia that may have made them leave?
