Re: Divorce Among Jews in Poland #poland

Wendy -
Any divorce in Poland would probably occur in a religious setting like the marriage itself. The Rabbi would give a Gett. It’s possible that to avoid the “shame” of being divorced, it might not be announced on public records. However it would definitely be recorded by the Rabbi and the new marriage record would probably mention it.

When looking for the first wife, make sure to look for her under the surnames of both her parents. Their marriage would probably not be recognized if it wasn’t registered civilly.
