    ... trembling", yet how easily one remembers the atmosphere of those times, a sense of gravity and oppression unlike anything felt through-out the year, when life was certainly not one endless carnival, God forbid 1 It is in Elul that people go to the "Heiliken Ort" (the cemetery) to visit the graves of the fathers. At the graveside some chapters of the Psalms are read by the men as well as prayers from the book "Ma’avar Yabok" while the women prostrate themselves on the tomb-stones and hold intimate converse with their mothers, sharing their pressing problems with them and bringing them up-to-date. They beg them to intercede for them and exert themselves to help their daughters. As they pour out their hearts and troubles they burst into tears and weep long and hard before they calm down ...

    ... forrcst and buried them in previously prepared mass graves. Before execution they "coaxed" them with painful blows to undress completely, and lie down in rows of ten on wooden planks placed across the graves which were 24 meters long, 12 meters wide and 10 meters deep. As they lay whisper-ing and chanting their last prayers, SS gunners wielding auto-matics sputtered bullets into the prostrate. Then the plank was tipped and the dead and wounded dropped into the grave and three Jews covered them wtih dirt. On top of them another row of bullet riddled bodies were dropped, and another, row upon row, until they filled the graves to the brim. Out of their depth faint, muffled moans floated upward and echoed mournfully in the forest of blood, but the sound of the rapid murderous staccato 8purt6 ...

    ... historical sources, a Jewish community existed in Mosty- Wielkie from the 15th century on. We know that there were old tombstones of famous rabbis in the cemetery. According to our fellow-member, Michael Tubisch (Yannai), there was one wooden tombstone in the cemetery marking the grave of a famous rabbi: "From time to time, in the month of Elul, Hassidim would come to the cemetery, prostrate themselves on his grave, and replace the old tombstone with a new wooden one". Avraham Ben-Pazi’s article, "Yad Vashem L’Kdoshei Ir Molad’ti Mosty- Wielkie", which appeared in the book "Shem Mishmariya" confirms this story. It is recalled that in the Mosty cemetery there is the tombstone of a rabbi who occupied the post of town rabbi in the 16th century. This rabbi (whose name Ben-Pazi ...

    Avraham Ackner Tel Aviv WE OWE YOU We owe you a memorial — Neither of marble nor of hewn stone, Nor engraved with golden letters. Not even a torch will burn upon it. We did not bear you to a Jewish grave, Prostrate ourselves upon it in Elul, kiss the ground. Your burial place unknown — Our suffering is boundless. We did not supervise your burial ; We did not chant the orphan’s Kaddish. We did not sit shiva. Where is the grave? Where is that place? We coffined you in our own wounded bodies. Deep in our hearts your image is engraved. Sorrow and grief keep us on our path ; Our mourning is eternal ; every day we commune with you. We set up no ...
