Some interesting graphics showing how borders change on Google Maps depending on where they’re viewed from.

True story: my paternal grandfather was very, very adamant that he was Ukrainian. Dad once spent an entire evening with him and an atlas (that was a thing we had in the Days Before Google, kids!) trying to figure out where his town of birth was.

It wasn’t until they started looking in Poland that they actually found it.

Still. Peety-pa died knowing both he and his town were from the Ukraine, atlas be damned.
