Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia RE: Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army -- Additional Information #galicia


Madeleine Isenberg
 

To all,

On October 7, 2018, I responded to Jacob Baal-Schem's question about
the Jewish soldiers serving in Franz Yosef's army. I suggested the book
by Erwin A. SCHMIDL, "Jews in the Habsburg Armed Forces," that covers
1788-1918.

Since that posting several people have contacted me asking about where
they can find this book to purchase it, and at one point there were some
copies available >from Amazon. Those seem to have been bought out. Other
possible copies are available (see abebooks.com) in a range of prices that
may be beyond some people's means.

What is probably most important to those interested in the book, is who
might be referenced within this slim volume. I have undertaken to
transcribe the list of names that appear in the "Register/Index." Since I
created only one KehilaLinks website within the "domain" of Gesher
Galicia, for Nowy Targ, if you scroll down to this page,
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/nowy_targ/Nowy_Targ-Other.html , you
will find a reference to the aforementioned book and if you click on the
Register/Index, you can call up the PDF of the transcribed list.

Be forewarned that the list includes personages who were once world
leaders and obviously not Jewish.

Enjoy!
