Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia is delighted to announce the release of the September
2019 issue of our quarterly research journal, the "Galitzianer." This
issue portrays Galicia >from different perspectives=E2=80=94historical,
political, architectural, and geographical=E2=80=94and takes readers on a
journey >from the birth of Austrian Galicia to today.

In the September issue, we experience Emperor Joseph II=E2=80=99s early
encounters with the Jews of Galicia, and we witness the evolution of
Jewish participation in local politics. We read about an assistant
rabbi >from Dolina whose loyalty to the state helped him to maintain
his job. We meet a Jewish architect with an artistic legacy that lives
on in Lviv and a family legacy that lives on in the US Congress. We
are introduced to two brothers >from Dynow, whose lives diverged
dramatically during World War II. Finally, we get to know Steven
Turner and learn how a question about his surname took him on a quest
that ultimately led to his new position as president of Gesher
