Descrizione prodotto


Andrew Zalewski is a cardiologist who lives in the Philadelphia area with his wife, Margaret. They have two children and four grandchildren. In his first book, Galician Trails, Andrew Zalewski traced his mother’s family from the 18th century to the mid-20th. Now, in Galician Portraits, he discovers his father’s side, who also lived in Austrian Galicia, but whose experiences were very different simply because they were Jewish.

For all you Galitzianers, historians and genealogists out there here is a book review on a book I think you will really want to read. It is called Galician Portraits by Dr. Andrew Zalewski, a follow up to his groundbreaking Galician Trails. Portraits is the search for Andrew’s Galician Jewish paternal roots, while Trails has as it’s theme his maternal Polish Catholic roots.

I must start by saying that Andrew is a friend of mine. He is a member of the Nadworna and Rohatyn Shtetl Research Groups and he has provided me much aid in my own genealogical research particularly with translations of Polish records. Andrew is also the Historical Director for Gesher Galicia and is a notable lecturer on historical Galicia. His lecture on WWI in Galicia at this past summer’s IAJGS was very well received.

With this background I had great excitement when I received and started to read the book. I was not disappointed. The book is fabulous. As someone with great knowledge of the history of Galicia, Andrew intertwines the story of his family with what was happening in Galician society at the time. Great detail is given to governmental edicts and attitudes towards the Jews of Galicia. In addition, most interesting discussions with extensive research are written about the forces at play within the Jewish Community of Galicia ie the Frankist movement, the Enlightenment, Orthodoxy vs Progressive, different Rabbinical rivalries, etc.
We get to follow Andrew’s paternal grandmother and grandfather’s families through stages of Galician history. These stories I think would be interesting for anybody, but especially for someone like me and those in our group with similar backgrounds, who has not studied and researched this topic as much as Andrew.

Andrew’s paternal grandmother was from Rohatyn the birthplace of my paternal grandfather. Andrew goes to great lengths to describe what life was like for the Jews of Rohatyn. I found this to be most enjoyable. His writing brings what life was like in the shtetl alive. The same is true for his paternal grandfather’s life story from the shtetl of Kolomyja where many of our group have ancestors from and is only 40 kms (24 miles) from Nadworna where my father was born. Andrew follows this family story from the earliest ancestor available through WWII, the Holocaust and the post war period.

Portraits, is a deeply personal tribute to Andrew’s ancestors. He opens himself up completely and tells the story of these people in a most moving way. I commend him for the thoroughness of his research, for the beautiful prose, and for the historical detail he meticulously footnotes throughout the book.

The publication is a very handsome book and it is embellished with interesting pictures and maps that aid in telling the story. It is a very easy and smooth flowing read that I highly recommend.
