Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry Volume 12: Focusing on Galicia: Jews, Poles and Ukrainians 1772-1918

Israel Bartal and Antony Polonsky


From 1772 to 1918 Jews were concentrated more densely in Galicia than in any other area in Europe. This book explores the Jewish community in Galicia and its relationship with the Poles, Ukranians, and other ethnic groups. Chapters include discussions of the consequences of Galician autonomy; Galician Jewish migration to Vienna; the reforms of Maria Theresa and Joseph II in the eighteenth century, the assimilation of the Jewish elite; and levels of literacy among Poles and Jews.

Keywords: Jews, Galicia, Jewish community, Poles, Ukrainians, Galician autonomy, Galician Jewish migration, Maria Theresa, Joseph II, Jewish elite
