To them the money was addressed and by them they were fairly and justly distributed among the needy, with a deep sense of social responsibility and above all, in strictest con- fidence. Full reports were submitted to the American committee so that it had accurate information as to the manner in which the funds were used. The spirit in which this work was done is reflected clearly even today in the letters, reprinted in this book, which were signed by Yaakov Ekstein.

We lived on memories, again and again re- counting past times when we would walk through the woods on outings, swim in the river and walk freely through the town streets.

Durch diesen Erlass war den jüdischen Wollhändlern freie Bahn gemacht und sie fanden sich in immer grösserer Zahl in Bielitz ein. Dass sie trotzdem auch in der Folge nicht unbehel-ligt blieben und Akten der Unduldsamkeit und Gehässigkeit aus-gesetzt waren, dafür führt der Verfasser folgendes Beispiel an: "Ein Beispiel leidenschaftlicher Gehässigkeit bietet die am 3.
