Leopold Ritter von Sacher-Masoch (1836-1895) was an Austrian nobleman, writer and journalist, who is known for his romantic stories of Galician life and for the fact that the word 'masochism' was derived from his name, invented by his contemporary, the Austrian psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing. As part of his Galician life stories, in the years 1860s to 1880s, he published the Jewish Short Stories as well as Polish Short Stories, Galician Short Stories, German Court Stories and Russian Court Stories.
