Most likely, this leaflet was posted on walls in public places. This order permitted Jews to reside only within city or village communities (Jewish permanent residency). However, they were allowed to go to work or go shopping. The punishment for disobedience was three months of imprisonment or a fine of one thousand Polish złoty. Jews could also be sent to labor camps.
Galicia became a part of the Second Polish Republic in 1918 and fell under Soviet occupation in 1939 as part of Soviet Ukraine. The District of Galicia was established by Nazi Germany on August 1, 1941, following the start of Operation Barbarossa. Nazi Germany's anti-Jewish propaganda was influential in Galicia. "In June-July 1941, it is estimated that over 4,000 Jews were killed in pogroms (consecutive massacres) in L'viv and other cities in Western Ukraine" (Encyclopedia of the Holocaust, 1990).
The L'viv Ghetto became one of the largest Jewish ghettos established by Nazi Germany.
This particular document was prepared for the city of Kamianka Strumilova (now Kamianka-Buzka), located in Lviv Oblast. It is dated September 13th.
