Historical Note

Although fragmentary in nature, the documents in this collection reflect in considerable detail the period between the two world wars and the situation of the Jewish minority in reborn independent Poland. In the course of twenty years, the Jewish community in Poland led the existence of a national minority whose status was formally vouchsafed by the Minority Treaties which Poland signed, but which was largely ignored. In reality, hostility toward Jews from both the government as well as from large segments of the population prevailed. At the same time, Jewish communities strived to develop and maintain a host of internal institutions and organizations which served the most crucial needs of the people, such as health care, education, and economic needs. Jewish autonomy was a fact of life despite the government’s reluctance to recognize it as such. Of singular importance were the community councils (kehillah, kehiles) which constituted an internal administration for the Jewish population on a local level. kehillah elections (in which the majority of Jewish political groups participated) are richly illustrated in this collection through election announcements, leaflets, appeals, and other forms of electoral campaigning. Elections to the Sejm (Polish parliament) are well documented in a similar manner through electoral propaganda materials published by the political parties, which participated in the elections individually or allied as blocs with other groups. A significant number of documents pertain to the 1930s, which were years of a worsening political and economic situation for Jews in Poland.

Scope and Content Note

The Poland (Vilna Archives) Collection consists entirely of ephemera and fragmentary materials. Included are printed materials, announcements, invitations, leaflets, notes, minutes, correspondence, newspaper clippings, and posters. The materials are loosely linked by the fact that they derive from the same town or city. The following topics are included: political organizations such as Agudas Yisroel, Bund, Hehalutz, Mizrachi, Poalei Agudas Yisroel, Poale Zion; community elections, elections to the Sejm (Polish Diet); business and economics: banks, credit unions, taxes; labor: trade unions, strikes; cultural activities and groups: Yiddish cultural organizations, publishing houses; religious matters: synagogues, ritual slaughter (shekhitah), rabbinical figures; sports clubs, games; historical events: pogroms, German occupation of Poland during World War I. Of special interest are town histories compiled by YIVO correspondents who took part in a project by the YIVO Historical Commission for Poland to research and write Jewish communal history in the places where they lived.

Arrangement

The collection consists of a single series arranged geographically and alphabetically. It was organized in the 1950s from the surviving fragments of the pre-war YIVO Vilna archives. Materials are grouped in folders according to locality name. In the present finding aid the locality’s Polish name and the corresponding Yiddish name are shown together in the folder title with the Yiddish name in parentheses, e.g.: “ RZESZOW (Rayshe)”.
