lI was just curious about the conditions in Poland at that time that might have prompted so many people to leave.

By then, the pogroms were sadly in full force.

Many Polish citizens (and back then, Poland was part of Vistula Land in the Russian Empire; so, many Vistulalanders) emigrated from both Congress Poland and Russian Pale areas such as Wołyn and Vaysrusland (now Belarus). Some even posed as Ethnic Poles and Lithuanians, and these Crypto Jews are sadly often overlooked: in order to be acknowledged as an Ashkenazi Jew of Crypto-Jewish descent with ancestors from that time period, you usually have to be someone like John Kerry.
