Wer kennt heute noch Galizien? Wer weiß noch, wo es liegt — oder besser, wo es lag? Denn Galizien gibt es nicht mehr. Es ist von der Landkarte verschwunden. Sein westlicher Teil gehört heute zu Polen, sein östlicher zur Ukraine. Joseph Roth, der vielleicht beste Kenner dieser Welt, aber auch viele andere Schriftsteller entstammen jener Gegend. Der jüdische Witz war hier zu ...more
