    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.

    Dr. Steven Turner
    President, Gesher Galicia
