Summary/Abstract: In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Jews of the Poznań (Posen) region found themselves between the German and Polish national movements. Every time when the conflict between these movements intensified, the Jews fell victim to it. The following article examines how the German revolution of November 1918 and the Polish national uprising of 1918–1919 affected the Jews of the Poznań province. The “Auswanderung,” a massive and hasty emigration of the Jews, is presented in the broader context of the Jewish emigration from and assimilation in the region during the “long” nineteenth century.
