SYNOPSIS: Dr. Andrew Zalewski, author of two books on Galicia, brings history to life while answering questions like: What drove Jews to have a voice in modern society? How did they respond to new ideas from inside and outside their community? Which laws misfired on the Jews’ path to civil integration?

We explore these and other questions with a focus on Galicia, but also move beyond its borders—to Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Russia—to consider Jewish identity and experience more broadly. The course is illustrated by unique records, maps, and newly discovered documents.
