Description:
Chernivtsi was the ethnically most ‘mixed’ of all provincial capitals of the Habsburg Empire. In 1910 out of a total population of 90.000, around 33% were Jews, 17% Germans, 17% Ukrainians, 16% Romanians and 14% Poles. The rest were Armenians, Hungarians, Slovaks, Lippowanians etc. During the Austrian era, each of the major ehtnic groups established a network of various cultural, educational, sporting, political and social organizations and associations. “National” or “People’s Houses” were built as a meeting point, at the same time those buildings were meant to express the self-confidence and pride of the ethnic group. The postcard shows the Ukrainian National House in Chernivtsi, opposite of the Armenian Church. It was built between 1887 and 1899 by the Ukrainian association “Narodnyj Dim” (People’s house) and became the center of Ukrainian life in the Bukowina. Consequently, it played and important role in the renaissance of Ukrainian language and self identity before the first World War. The house is still used by various Ukrainian cultural organizations.
