Historical Background

Stanislav/Stanislau/Stanisławów (after 1962, Ivano-Frankivsk) was founded in 1654, with Jews receiving the right to permanent settlement in the town in 1662. The Jewish population thrived during the eighteenth century, becoming the leading merchant community. During Austrian rule, Jews played a vital role in civic affairs, with an assimilated Jew named Arthur Nemhein serving mayor from 1897 to 1919. In the early twentieth century, Stanislav was a major center of Jewish manufacturing.

In 1910 there were 15,253 Jews living in the city (with a total population of 33,280) and in 1931 there were 24,825 (with a total population of 72,350). There were approximately 25,000 Jews living in Stanislav at the outbreak of World War II. The city was under Soviet occupation from September 1939 until July, 1941 when it came under German control. When the Soviet army liberated Stanislav in July 1944, there were about one hundred Jews who had survived in hiding. It is believed that about 1,500 Jews from Stanislav survived the war.
