Does anyone have information about last names #poland #holocaust #names

I'm looking for information regarding which last names the children, my ancestors (or any ancestor in general) were given. Those of the father or those of the mother. I know that Hitler considered all Jewish children bastards and they were to take their mother's last names, however, is there any information that anyone knows of regarding practices before the second world war?  I have not been able to find any information about this. My relatives came from Poland (now Ukraine) and Austria and I have a copy of a birth certificate of one of my father's uncles (Poland) who was born in the late 1800s and his last name is his mother's.
Thanks in advance!
