The Galitzianer: Call for Papers #galicia #general

Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia’s journal, the Galitzianer, invites members and non-members of Gesher Galicia to submit articles with a clear connection to Jewish life in Austrian Galicia (1772–1918). Submissions can also relate to Jewish life in the territory of former Galicia during the interwar period and the Holocaust. 

We welcome articles about Jewish history, culture and family life in Galicia, as well as discussions of heritage sites and archival records. While we are interested in stories from all parts of Galicia, we are particularly seeking submissions on western Galician towns because they are harder to come by. 

Prior to submitting an article, please contact me at submissions@... with a brief description of your proposal. Once accepted, all articles undergo editorial review and revisions to make sure they conform to the style and standards of the journal. We will also consider articles you have previously written, as well as excerpts from books or manuscripts you have authored, assuming you obtain the necessary reprint permission and make sure the submission fits within our 2500-word-count recommendation. 

For other information about the Galitzianer, including instructions for authors, please feel free to contact me or to consult our website at

Thank you,
