The March Issue of the Galitzianer #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG

We are pleased to announce the release of the March 2023 issue of the Galitzianer, the quarterly research journal of Gesher Galicia. In this issue, you will explore the mystery of why so many more Jewish boys than girls appear to have been born in 1806 Lemberg. You will also meet some interesting characters, ranging from Israel Liebermann, the enfant terrible of the Galician oil industry, to Helena Rubinstein, the icon of the cosmetics industry. In addition, this issue contains family letters, a heritage story, and a theater review. Here is a list of the articles you don't want to miss:


  • The Missing Girls of Lemberg by P.Y. Mund
  • Jews in the Oil Fields of Galicia by Vladyslava Moskalets
  •  First Lady of Beauty: The Helena Rubinstein Story by Kinga Banasik
  • The Landesberg Letters by Jonathan Naor
  • The Wall of Memory in Dobromyl by Arthur Kurzweil 
  • President’s Page by Steven S. Turner
