Making and Defending a Polish Town: “Lwów” (Lemberg), 1848-1914

  • Harald Binder

Many east central European towns and cities bear several names, reflecting the ethnic and religious diversity once characteristic of the region. The town chosen in 1772 by the Habsburgs as capital of their newly acquired province of Galicia serves as an example. In the second half of the nineteenth century Ruthenian national populists referred to the city as “Ľviv”; Russophiles designated the city “Ľvov.” For Poles and Polonized Jews the town was “Lwów,” and for Germans as well as German- and Yiddish-speaking Jews the city was “Lemberg.” The ethnic and linguistic reality was, in fact, much less clear than these divisions would suggest. For much of the period of Habsburg rule, language barriers remained permeable. The city's inhabitants were multilingual, often employing different languages depending on the type of communication in which they were engaged. By the

24 Around 50 percent were Roman Catholics, 40 percent Jews. These numbers emerge from two independent censuses, 1840 and 1851. Michat, Wiesiotowski, Rys statystyczno-jeograficzny Galicyi Austriackiej (Poznań, 1842), 75 f.; Die ruthenische Sprach- und Schriftfrage in Galizien (Ľviv, 1861), 246.

25 In fact, one of Lemberg's leading “Polish” activists in 1848, the writer, journalist, and politician Jan Dobrzański, was himself a Greek Catholic.

26 Strongholds were the Greek Catholic St. George Cathedral and the seminary, located in the suburb of Halicz, and the Church of Assumption, together with the Stauropygian Institute situated in the medieval Ruthenian quarter.

We do not know precisely how many listeners were convinced by this rather bland speech delivered by a provincial bureaucrat while such dramatic events were taking place outside.

28 The political debates cannot be treated here in detail.

Miasta Lwowa wedłig uchwał Rady miejskiej z r. 1871“ (List of the new and old names of estates and names of streets and squares in the royal city of Lwów according to the resolution of the city council in 1871) (Ľviv, 1872). See also the map, “Plan król stoł miasta Lwowa ze skorowidzem dawnych i nowych nazw placów i ulic” (Map of the royal capital city of Lwów with a list of the old and new names of squares and streets) (Ľviv, 1872). A survey of the first act of renaming in December 1869 can be found in Gazeta Narodowa Jan. 1, p. 2; Jan. 4, pp. 2–3; and Jan. 5, 1870, p. 3.

40 The “de-austrianization” was not very conspicuous, as there were not many Austriandefined names. “Ferdinandsplatz” was turned into “plac Mariacki” (after a statue of St. Mary erected in 1862), and Fresnel Straße into ulica Kościuszko. The main promenade kept its Austrian name honoring Karl Ludwig, as did the hill with the old castle, which was named for the reigning emperor, Francis Joseph.

41 The relevant state of affairs can be conveniently traced by the growing number of urban maps, especially the most splendid one, issued by the city council in 1890: “Plan królewskiego stołecznego miasta Lwowa (z enklava Jalowiec) wydany staraniem i nakładem Rady miejskiej /Plan der k. Residenzstadt Lemberg und der Enclave Jalowiec, hgg. v. Stadtrat,” then in the immediate prewar years, “Lwów—Lemberg—Ľviv—Léopol“ (Ľviv, ca. 1912).

In 1886 Papée had been one of the cofounders of the Historical Society (Towarzystwo Historyzne) in Lwów. The Cracow Historical School, not uncontested in Lwów, had largely neglected the urban sphere. Lwów produced its own historical school, which focused on medieval history and the editing of sources. The only urban historian worth mentioning is Władysław łoziński, who wrote several treatises on the history of the town in the 1860s and 1870s.

54 The National Home, founded in 1864, was controlled by the older generation of conservatives of Russophile (Old Ruthenian) orientation. At the same time, the building hosted all-Ruthenian representative events such as the emperor's visit in September 1880 and the first all-Ruthenian political meeting held in November of the same year.

64 The speech was printed in Nowa Reforma June 3, 1903, p. 1. This was Romanowicz's last major appearance on the political scene, as he died in the following year. The municipality honored him with a publicly financed burial and funeral procession as well as with a street in an area already inscribed with very respectable names.

68 The Jewish national movement was the most recent of the three “sources of threat.” Oriented toward urbanity and embracing Galuth nationalism, the Lwów-centered Jewish national movement also represented a third idea of Lwów as a capital of a constructed Jewish nationality in the Habsburg Empire. This topic would deserve further study. An overview of the Jewish history of the town is given by Vladimir, Melamed, Evrei vo Lvove: XIII—pervaia polovina XX veka (The Jews of Ľvov from the thirteenth to the middle of the nineteenth century) (Ľviv, 1994).

70 In 1905, the insurance company Dnister had erected a “Ruthenian” building on “Ruska street,” of which the facade had been decorated in a mixed style of art nouveau and Ruthenian folk art. In 1895, the Enlightment society Prosvita, a core institution for the Ukrainophiles, had aquired the former Lubomirski palace on the comer of the market square. The building offered space for political and cultural gatherings and harbored Ukrainophile societies, newspaper offices, and a bookshop. Other important new buildings were those for the Shevchenko and Pedagogical societies, the National Hotel (Narodna Hostynnytsja, 1906), which hosted a “Ruthenian” restaurant and coffee shop, and finally the National Museum (Narodnyj Muzej, 1913).

71 The account is in Dilo, July 2, 1912, p. 2. The day ended in heavy clashes between students and acts of vandalism against Ukrainian institutions. Dilo, July 3, 1912, p. 4. Gazeta Narodowa, July 3, 1912, p. 2.
