Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Citizenship and marriage #galicia

Can anyone tell me whether my Czech born aunty Olga THORSCH would have
acquired Polish citizenship upon her marriage in 1917 at the Temple in Krakow
to a Polish Jew Maks BRANDMANN?

Born in Uhersky Brod in the Czech republic Olga would have been an Austrian
citizen I assume.

Krakow was then part of Galicia in Austria but did Jews have Polish or
Austrian citizenship at that time?

Her husband born Pinchas BRANDMANN was born in Tarnow on 8 November
1876. Would he have automatically been Polish or Austrian or Russian? His
parents were Efraim born in Mielec and Malke born in Tarnow.
