    ... most Polish towns, the Rabbi was never called to funerals, nor did the family hire anyone to eulogize the dead. The corpse was prepared for burial at home. Then the funeral procession passed by the synagogue where the deceased used to pray, paused, and Melech Melamed would intone the El Mole Rachamim. The Agudas Achim was a middle-class society.

On Simchas Torah all the members participated in a collation. During ...

    ... also led by their mothers. Oh, how terrible — Shortly after Milus had left it started like a thunderous storm, and within only a few minutes the town was changed into hell. From our place of work at the agricultural district cooperative, which was surrounded by a high fence, we could hear the smashing of windows, the breaking down of doors, rifle shots, loud and wild screaming in German and Ukrainian, accom- panied by the barkinng of dogs, lamenting of people dragged from their homes, and crying of children.
