Dear Gesher Galicia Members and Friends,

Please join us for the Joint Program of Gratz College and Gesher Galicia. We invite Gesher Galicia members (worldwide) and non-members to explore the intersection between history and genealogy.

The Battle for Jewish Rights
Speaker: Dr. Andrew Zalewski

The current calls for social justice, accompanied by unrest and political turmoil, bear similarities with the story of the battle for Jewish rights in the Austrian Empire in 1848. During the talk, we will witness discourse on the streets of Vienna and Lemberg; hear reactions to the idea of Jewish emancipation; glance at the first Jewish newspaper in Galicia and learn more about the various controversies.

Upon registering, you will receive an email from Gratz College—please save it and join the meeting 10 minutes in advance to avoid technical difficulties.

This presentation is a part of the collaboration between Gesher Galicia and Gratz College. Founded in 1895, Gratz is the oldest independent and pluralistic college for Jewish studies in North America.

We look forward to “seeing” you!

Dr. Steven S. Turner
Gesher Galicia, President
