    Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of new records to
    our open-access database: https://search.geshergalicia.org/

    This communication refers to the Jewish Medical Students Project,
    which brings records and biographical information on Galician students
    who attended several universities in Austria-Hungary and in the
    successor states (post 1918). New records added to the AGD include the following:

    -- Lwow University (1919-1939) from the State Archive of Lviv Oblast
    (DALO, Fond 26/section 15; Ukraine)

    -- Prague University: German and Czech universities (1882-1939) from
    the Charles University Archive (the Czech Republic).

    In total about 3,500 records of Jewish medical students and midwives
    have been indexed to date. Earlier uploads included records from the
    following universities:

    -- Jagiellonian University (1802-1918)
    -- Lwow University (1894-1918)
    -- Pest University (1770-1921)

    In addition to the Gesher Galicia database (free access), members of
    Gesher Galicia can examine the expanded information on Jewish students (regarding parents and their occupations, places of medical practice, Holocaust-related, etc.) after login via the Members Portal: https://www.geshergalicia.org/login/ in the Archival Records.

    We welcome receiving additional biographical details and the records on Jewish medical students found in our database. To that end, please contact us
    at: info@geshergalicia.org.

    In 2020 we plan to add additional indexes from Jagiellonian University (1919-1939), with the records from other universities to follow.
