HÖNIGSMANN, OSWALD:

Austrian deputy; born in Rzeszow, Austrian Galicia, Dec. 2, 1824; died Oct. 24, 1880. He was educated at Lemberg, where he graduated as doctor of law. His democratic tendencies delayed his admission to the bar in Lemberg for several years. Hönigsmann was a member of both the city and communal councils of Lemberg. He defended Dr. Florian Ziemialkowski, afterward minister, who was accused of participation in the Polish revolution of 1863.

Hönigsmann represented the city of Brody in the Galician Diet, and delivered (Oct. 8, 1868) an effective speech in behalf of the emancipation of the Jews, bringing about a victory for Franz Smolka's efforts in that direction. In 1872 he settled in Vienna. In 1873, after a hard campaign, Houuml;nigsmann was returned to the Austrian Parliament from the Galician district of Kolomea-Sniatyn-Buczacz.
