Why did Jews slavicize their last names? #general

David Goldman <davic@...>

I have wondered whether any studies have been done to explain why certain
Jewish communities or families slavicized their original Germanic Jewish
last names, while others did not. Why did this happen, where and when?

Thus Rosen probably became Krasner, Schwartz Cherny, Apfel Yablik, etc.
