    ... of meeting the most elementary primitive needs. Each new arrival added to the nightmare of a penned in, twisted masB of humanity. If one ventured outside the ghetto fence for whatever reason, out-right death was the penalty. Wolf, executioner of Jaworow, cheerfully ambushed the unwary victims. He himself murdered twenty Jews in two days following the formation of the ghetto. There reappeared the Jewish scum, Dovid Badian and Buzie Hahn, who again took things in hand. They reorganized the **Jewish Council" at the home of a certain Lopaczak, located in the heart of the ghetto. They converted Rabbi Fraenkel's home into a hospital for serious cases, and also set up a relief committee. Only ten percent of the funds they raised, went for public needs; the rest fattened their own hides. Remnants ...

    ... , marking an Ukrainian holiday and headed by pious looking priests and a forest of religious banners, moved along the streets that were splashed with Jewish blood. The flock chorused hymns of their church in the name of the Prince of Peace. On November 8, the German security police put an end to the slaughter. A number of holder Jew* leaped off the death train speeding them to Belzec. Sonic like David Badian, Shiinen Kanigal, the brothers Hayim and Shmucl Unger. Chaye Boehm and her two children, Simclc Strich and child, Blume Amhach. Esther Blitz and her two children, Wolf Katz of Oszomla, Sime Mendelsohn and others, landed safely and even returned to Jaworow. Among those who were killed in the attempt to save their lives were Elka Wurzel, Moses Eichenbaum, Shmuel Mendelsohn, etc. Youthful ...

    ... . He too was a kindly man and tried to act as a buffer against catastrophe and corruption. For that reason Steucr disqualified him and gave the post to his favorite lackey, Dovid Badian, who faith-fully served the German masters. He helped them in degrading and exterminating his brothers. Steuer was so pleased with his collaboration that he openly preferred him to Boczninski, the Ukrainian mayor ... of Jaworow.* The office of vice-chairman of the Jewish Council, com-bined with that of chief of the reorganized Jewish police which was christened "Ordnung Dienst", fell to Buzie Hahn. Like Badian he was of no comfort to the afflicted community. Two days after Blum's death, the desecration and desola-tion of the Jewish cemetery began. Men, women and children of all ages were put to ...

    ... a town or village, he left a trail of tears, torture and sorrow. His appetite for loot was insatiable, and the Jewish Council had no choice but to supply him with whatever they could. Sender Blum, who headed the Council, was an honest but ineffectual man. His weakness was exploited by Shlomc Hen• ner, his son Mundek, and Yakob Winter who in reality con-dncted the communal affairs such as they were under the Nazi boot. Dovid Badian who subsequently played a dismal part in Jaworow, was at that time only a member of the Jewish police force. Under Nazi pressure they abused and mishandled their fellow Jews with perhaps questionable rUor. Steuer made surprise visits to the Council and lashed out at those present. Unexpectedly he forced his way into Jewish homes, swept the dishes from the table ...

    ... them reappeared those Ukrainians who had previously fled to Germany when they evacuated Jaworow in 1939. One of them was a certain Smuch who immediately reorganized an Ukrainian police force. Again Jews went into hiding. A few hours later the commandant re-quested that a delegation of Jews appear before him. The com-mittee who reported included: Sender Blum, Laib Marbach, Hayim Strich, Dovid Badian, Lazar Wimmer, Yeshue Margu-lies, Aaron Littman, Yisrocl Grohman and Shloime Strassberg. The Gauleiter, a Slovak named Holub, instructed the Jews to form a council and their own militia charged with conducting their own communal affairs according to the new laws. The Jews were to furnish the Nazi overlords with stipulated quotas of workers and collect whatever taxes and indemnities imposed upon ...
