This Day in Jewish History / Anti-Jewish pogroms end in Poland
In three days of violence following the declaration of Polish statehood in 1918, the army terrorized thousands of Jews, killing 150.
On November 23, 1918, three days of anti-Jewish pogroms came to an end in Lemberg, in eastern Galicia (today Lviv, Poland). During the unrest, the city’s large and influential population of Jews found itself caught in the middle of a national struggle between Poles and Ukrainians. Up to 150 Jews were murdered and many others had their homes and property looted and destroyed.
