    ... Sweden received assistance in cash. The secretary of the United Rzeszower Relief Committee during World War I and II was Dr. Wachtel, a member of the Rzeszower Society from its foundation in the early part of the 20th century.

    ... Wie eingangs erwähnt, bin ich als erster Zögling im Jahre 1912 zum Herrenturnen zugelassen worden, nachdem man meine turntechnischen Qualitäten wie auch Sporttalent erkannt hatte. Dies geschah jedoch ganz inoffiziell, denn laut den bestehenden Schulvorschriften war es strengstens verboten, dass Schüler Mit-glied eines Vereines sein durften. Die Professoren der Mittel-schule, Werner und Fink, die selbst aktive Turner waren, mus-sten daher beide Augen zudrücken (und sie taten es gerne), da-mit ich ungehindert am Turnen teilnehmen konnte. - Der Turnbet-rieb wickelte sich damals in zwei Herrenriegen und einer Damenriege ab. Der Höhepunkt der Turnsaison war das Chanukka-Fest, wo gewöhnlich als Makkabäer-Feier ein Schauturnen im Saale sowohl von der Herrenriege als auch von der Damenriege ...

    ... every field of Zio.«ist endeavor he was both active and activating, be it for the Keren Kaycmeth Le'YisracI, organizing Hebrew courses, or any activity exigent for the Zionist cause. He was an active participant in every election campaign for the "Seim", the local Jewish Committee or the Municipality, and put his heart and soul into the propaganda conducted for the Zionist lists. He married a daughter of the Werner family which was well established in the shtetl and its environs, with many branches. He supported his wife and three children with difficulty by giving lessons in Hebrew and selling Zionist literature, particularly the "Heint" (Today), the major Zionist daily ap-pcaring in Warsaw.
