When uncmploy-ment and strikes in the industrial cities were the scourge of the country, the Jew was painted by her as the plutocrat who exploited Poland's sons of labor. A Jewish boy who protested and branded her allegations as untrue was severely punished. Fight between Jewish and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain.

The Jaroslav townspeople in Israel wish to thank one of their distinguished members, Rabbi Moshe Stein-berg of Kiryat Yam for his gracious consent to the in-elusion, in this volume, of a large portion of his compre-hensive essay on the history of Jaroslav Jewry.
