Call for Papers and Photos #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG

Gesher Galicia’s journal, the Galitzianer, invites members and nonmembers of Gesher Galicia to submit articles with a clear connection to Jewish life in Austrian Galicia (1772–1918). Submissions can also relate to Jewish life in the territory of the former Galicia during the interwar period and the Holocaust. We welcome articles on Jewish history, family life, and archival records, as well as submissions on the contributions by Galician Jews to various disciplines, such as mathematics, the sciences, politics, and the arts.


Please contact me at submissions@... with a brief description of your proposal and review our submissions policy at All articles undergo editorial review and revisions to make sure they conform to the style and standards of the journal. We also consider articles previously written for other publications, assuming the contributor obtains the necessary reprint permission.


Finally, we welcome photos of your Galician Jewish ancestors for consideration in the “Faces of Galicia” section of our journal. Photos should be submitted to me at submissions@... as jpg attachments to an email and should be at a resolution of 300 dpi. Please include the following information with your photos: names of people pictured, where in Galicia they are from, and where and approximately when the photos were taken.
