  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 242 {y32}
    baranow amusement and relaxation The tempo of living was slow in Baranow. The stores were part of the homes. A man opened the store when he got up in the morning and closed it when he retired for the day. This was daily routine. The Bes Midrosh was the focal point of activity—religious, social and political. If one wanted to meet a person he went to the Bes Midrosh toward dusk, met him there and talked over the subject matter. The periods before elections, whether local or national, had the Bes Midrosh abuzzing. In the front pews, people would do the praying, but in the rear, the din of political or private discussions or deals would drown ...

    ... weekly. A voluntary committee was organized to handle this phase of activity. A tax was levied on the Jewish community and each family was obligated to pay a certain amount of money and two meals weekly for this purpose. Thus the transient poor was taken care of in an organized fashion. He re-ceived a sum of money plus two meals and a nights lodging if he "stayed over." This averted the spectacle of the migrant poor parading from door to door. It saved him time and effort and he was able to move on and cover more "territory." Part of this levy was designed for the local poor. In addition the income from Moos Chitim and contributions from the "Kehilla" made the life of the local poor, if not comfortable, at least tolerable. For a community the size of Baranow, this was an achievement ...

The synagogue, which earlier emitted echoes of voices of boys poring over the Talmud, was becoming silent part of the day. The midday hours were now devoted to reading newspapers or books of secular content. The mail brought in daily ten Yiddish (Haint), three Polish (Novy Dziennik) and two ... uncomfortable with their parents or the Rabbi. political parties There were basically two politically oriented sections with gradations of shadings in each: those grouping around the Rabbi—the Rov's Party—con-sisting mainly of the older, more conservative, more or less economically well-to-do elements of the population; and the younger generation, liberal minded and sophisticated, who largely followed ...

    ... steadily more oppressive. No Jews was to get license to sell tobacco. The Jewish saloon keepers found difficulty in having their licenses renewed notwithstanding the intervention of the Jewish members of the Sejm (parliament). In addition, the non-Jewish element made serious attempts to establish businesses. The famous slogan "Swoj do swego'' (Each to his kind) was much exploited. The clergy, too, took active part in this campaign. The existing laws prohibiting stores from doing business on Sunday were frequently circumvented. The Jewish merchant would find a way to bring the customer into his store through a side entrance. The clergy was not un-aware of this. The priest would leave Mass in church and, in his priestly garb, swoop down on the 1'Marek'' and publicly castigate the visitors ...

The accuracy of this claim was not established and actual names of deceased arc not available. What is known for certain is that a scries of major fires took place in the 90's of last century. The most damaging one was that in 1898, which caused the central part of town to burn down. The townhall went up in flames and with it all documents that might have shed some light on the history of the township. Baranow was not long in rebuilding. In place of the old wooden hovels new brick structures rose. Consequently Baranow gave the appearance of a young town. The calendar was a casualty of the impact of the fires. Thus, for a long ...
