The monument to the holy martyr, the parish priest of Maidanek, Father Omelian Kovch went to Lublin, Poland today. The monument is planned to be erected on March 24, and its opening will take place the next day, March 25. Its authors are the sculptor Oleksandr Diachenko and architect Marta Diachenko.

According to the creators of the monument to the prominent Ukrainian priest, this sculpture is a generalized figure of Fr. Omelian Kovch, who laid his hands on a large cube. The priest seemed to have merged with the cube, wanting to raise it above the ground.

The cube is an extremely relentless form that, like fate and unbearable suffering, presses, crushes the human will and soul, but by the power of faith, by the power of the spirit, this burden gets off the earth, giving relief and hope.

It was reported that the decision to build the monument was made by the Lublin city authorities in 2018, and on February 22, 2019, the first stone was laid.
