The majority of the population in the area has always been Ukrainian with minority populations of Poles and Jews. Starting in the mid-17th century resentment of the Ukrainian population grew over the presence of what they considered foreigners in their midst; Bogdan Chmelnitsky, used this to fan the flames of nationalism. Chmelnitsky initiated bloody pogroms against thousands of Jews in Ukraine including the Jews of Berezne. See Wikipedia for WWII information.
