Re: When were Jews in Galicia (Poland and now Ukraine) allowed to have passports? #galicia
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Jews in Galicia were emancipated and given rights of citizenship by the Austrians in the 1860s, the right to a passport would be included. Some people obtained passprts, but passports were not needed for travel to the United States until after World War I. By that time Galicia was part of the new nation of Poland and Jews who emigrated obtained Polish passports as Polish citizens.
