Bukovina was the easternmost "crownland" (a province or district
encompassing numerous cities and villages) of the Austrian Empire.
Today it is split between a portion of western Ukraine and northern
Romania. During Austrian times (pre-WWI), it became a prominent
center of Jewish and Yiddish culture.

The former capital of Bukovina, Czernowitz (today Chernivtsi), is
located in the Ukraine. More information on this city can be found
(Information on an email discussion group regarding Czernowitz and
Sadagura Jewish History and Genealogy may be found at this web site.)
