Dr. Lawrence A. Coben, Anna's Shtetl: Appendix A;

In: Anna's Shtetl, University of Alabama Press, Tuscaloosa, 2007, pp.175-180.


Lawrence Coben offers a succinct but noteworthy history of the migration of Jews to Poland. Fleeing persecution in the

west they were welcomed into the economy of Poland by its nobility. Then an overview of their experience from the

forming of the Commonwealth through the Partitions is given and finally their struggle in the Pale of Settlement.
