Galicia is in east central Europe between Poland and the Ukraine. In 1815, the Congress of Vienna ceded Galacia to Austria. From 1873, Galicia was an autonomous province of Austria-Hungary with Polish, Ukrainian and Ruthenin as official languages. From the 1880s to the World War I, a mass emigration from Galacia occurred.
