Some Glimpses at the Life of the Jewish Community of Sandomierz in the Years 1918-1939
Languages of publication
The article looks at selected problems related to daily life of the Jewish community in Sandomierz in the two decades separating the two world wars. Taking advantage of preserved and available archive sources, the author presents the occupations of the Jewish population of the town, its social or political activity or the charitable activities of its representatives. This is supported by statistical data concerning both the number of Jewish residents of the town and their role in trade and commerce. The author also looks at the functioning of the Sandomierz Jewish Religious Community, its problems and internal conflicts. The backdrop for a description of these problems is the life of the little town of Sandomierz, in which the Jews accounted for a large proportion of the total population, in the period between the two world wars.
