Languages of publication
This article is a source study based on information published in Echo Przemyskie – a periodical coming out in Przemyśl at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The literature on the subject, helpful in carrying out an analysis and comparing its results is based on studies by historians (both Polish and foreign) of different specializations, among others researchers of history of Jews, Przemyśl and the press. On the basis of the most frequent and typical descriptions the author attempts to reconstruct the image of a Jew depicted in the periodical in question during the first decade of its publication, often comparing his own conclusions with the results of analyses by other researchers. The structure of the article – after the initial part including the description of the newspaper in question and a brief outline of the reality of Przemyśl in the late 19th century – is based on the description of particular alleged characterological and physical features of Jewish people. In conclusion the author includes recapitulation based on an overall compilation of the previously described characteristics, which he attempts to depict against the background of mainstream Polish writing of that period.
