The December issue of the "Galitzianer" #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the release of the December 2018
issue of our quarterly research journal, the "Galitzianer."

In this issue, we ponder a Galician murder mystery, meet the first
woman to graduate as a doctor >from Lwow University, learn how Gesher
Galicia is working to uncover the names of unknown Holocaust victims,
and witness how personal genealogical research can grow into something
much bigger, in this case, a book about Jews in the Galician oil
industry. Through three different articles, we also become well
acquainted with the Galician town of Nadworna (now, Nadvirna,
Ukraine), >from its nineteenth-century geography to its WWII atrocities
to its modern-day contradictions. Finally, we experience the struggles
of two families during the Holocaust, with one story being told
through a series of archival postcards.

Here is the list of articles in this issue:

-- Research Corner: A Galician Murder Mystery and an
Update on Gesher Galicia's Research Projects by Tony Kahane
-- Lwow University Records by Andrew Zalewski
-- History through Genealogy by Valerie Schatzker
-- The Stanislawow Holocaust Project by Michal Majewski
-- In My Grandfather's Words by Christina Craig
-- Map Corner: Nadworna 1847 Field Sketch by Jay Osborn
-- Courage and Fortitude by Lily Winiger Bink
-- A Journey to Nadworna by Steven S. Turner
