Join us for the event hosted by Gratz College, the oldest independent
and pluralistic college for Jewish studies in North America. The
program will feature the talk by Andrew Zalewski, Gesher Galicia board
Title: "Jewish Galicia: Living Together and Apart"
Thursday, October 3, 2019
Gratz College, 7605 Old York Road, Melrose Park, PA 19027
12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Join us as we "enter" 19th century homes to meet the Jewish
inhabitants of Galicia (home to the largest Jewish community in the Austro-Hungarian Empire). Gesher Galicia's extensive archival
collections, Austrian censuses, postcards and maps, together with
newspaper clippings and pamphlets, bring to life Jewish presence in
cities, such as Lwow and Krakow, and other, smaller towns. Market
squares, streets, and schools - situated close to synagogues and
churches - provided shared spaces for Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians.
Reconstruct life of shared spaces and the richness of the cultural
heritage of the former Galicia.
Andrew Zalewski is vice president of Gesher Galicia and author of two
books on Austrian Galicia. Andrew is a frequent speaker at Jewish
genealogical societies and cultural and academic institutions in the
US and abroad. His talks focus on Galicia, with unique records
providing a background for his description of a large Jewish community
that once lived there.
