    ... 101 fever during an epidemic in the late 1920’s; and Ben now living in Australia. We worked very hard indeed. In my case, as a small boy I used to get up early to deliver bread and rolls to various shops and to nearby villages. Often my mother had to meet me with my school books when I was running late, and take the basket and money from me, so I could be punctual for school. This task wasn’t too bad in the summer, but in the winter when it was still dark early in the morning, I would arrive at school with frozen hands and feet. Monday was market day in Brzozow and that was our busiest day. I had to work and help in the bakery on Sundays when ...

    ... with the Passover — the sale of Ha-metz, dipping new dishes, the slaughter house, a question to the Rabbi on the Laws of the Pesach etc. Here is one of them passing in his cart through the market, whip in hand and evidently in good spirits. He is bringing a young calf for the slaughter to celebrate the Holiday. "Shalom aleichem, Reb Hershl," some young men surround him, "What’s that in your "polkoshik" (a reed basket woven all round the cart) ?" I’m bringing a "Korben PesachT* (a little Pass-over sacrifice, as in the days of the Temple) he ans-wers humurously, pleased at his own wit. At the words "a Korben PesachT’ the company brings him without ado to the Rabbi who, after eliciting the evidence from those present, gives the following sentence: the calf, being dedicated by Hershl ...

     56 the shovel and places them in a woven reed basket lined with a white cloth. At the table work goes on at full speed. The dough is not left still for one single moment and any "teigel" left on the table is immediately taken care of by the supervisor. As if he were patting a baby’s behind he beats it lightly with a rolling-pin to pre-vent its "falling asleep" and so much as "dreaming" of being fermented. This goes on until one of the girls has finished her matza and is ready to receive another "teigel". At the end of every round the rol-ling-pin is scraped with a broken piece of glass to clean it of any dough sticking to it and the ...

    ... she manages to get from her husband now is pure profit. She is fully aware that whatever is left will be delivered to the public house where it is doubtful whether anything will be left. Her husband, for his part, is stingy — it is good to enter the pub with a handful of rustling notes — not like a beggar unable to pay and treat the whole company. After shopping — a hasty lunch. The woman brings out her basket from the "polkoshik" in the cart, containing a huge loaf of bread, large as a cart-wheel and wrapped in a sheet. The bread is sliced into respectable portions, someone goes to the but-chers’ for "kilbassa", a cheap immitation of salami made of derma filled with spiced, roasted kasha and leftovers of meat and pork tripe. The farmers push this "salami" into the right side ...

Filler’s house beside the steps going down to "lavkes", where she tries to sell her light farm produce which belongs to her exclusively — half a liter of butter in a small enamel container covered by a white cloth with a character stamped in it in relief, full of grooves and made by a wooden spoon. It is the height of the butter protruding from the enamel container that determines its price. This butter was called ... Those who were strict about matters of kashrut would never eat it, fearing it was treif. Under her arm the farmer’s wife would hold a hen or a duck; in her other hand a wicker basket holding a "mart" of eggs (a mart = 60). These goods would be bought mainly by "oifkoyferkes", women who made their living by reselling them to the "bala-busies", the housekeepers who were too ...
