  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 422 {y24}
    ... volume is a memorial book dedicated not only to those who lived in the Suwałk vicinity, or those who grew up there, or studied there, or served their military duty there, or migrated from there or even perished there, or the descendants of all the foregoing, but it is a lxiok dedicated to World Jewry, not only of this generation but of all generations past. It is a book written with a very familiar theme and a recurring history. The story is as old as the Bible itself. The settlement of Jews in a stangc land; how they prospered and how they multiplied through the years — remaining nevertheless always strangers in a strange land no matter how long their tenure or how great the contribution to their society. Then, a time of stress and of crisis, and finally of social disorganization with ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 254 {y32}
    ... day when every thing was angulfcd in the calamity that overwhelmed European Jewry. We, a handful, have survived the Catastrophe and by a supreme effort we have begun to weave the strands that bind us to our ravished community. The years arc passing and a new generation has grown to maturity. This new generation, children and grandchildren of the men and women of Barniv in Israel and other countries, know very little about the community from which their parents hail, while the number of townsmen and townswomen of Barniv is steadily growing smaller. It is for these reasons that we regard the establishment of this memorial to the martyrs who died in the crematoria of Belzec as a sacred duty. The resources at our disposal are too small to perpetuate their name in some more imposing edifice ...

Others, who received a special "paragraph" in their papers which imposed all kinds of limitations,, particularly in the fields of employment and dwelling. Every person from the age of 18 and up had to work. If he was not employed, he was sent to the "Donbas" region. Those Jews of out town, who had no specific occupation, or those who were superfluous in their trades, tried very hard to create places of work at their own expense, so that they could remain in the town. The majority of the merchants became physical workers. Many professionals did likewise. The artisans organized themselves in "cooperatives". A Soviet official, called a "politrook", was assigned to each place of work. This official was responsible to the Government ...

    ... candidate opposing the one time Prime Minister Leon Blum. When Hitler invaded France this young man had to flee and was hidden near Nice, where he caught rheumatism which could be seen on one of his hands, lie asked me for S25.00 which I gave him and he promised that lie would send me the whole story of his life in France among the so-called Monarchist of the land, which would be very much interesting for publication but he never did. and no one else ever since heard from him. From France we sailed to Palestine in order to secure my visa to Cyprus. In the meantime, while I waited in Jerusalem, the British being extremely reluctant to issue visas for the D. P. Camps in Cyprus, I visited our Boibcrkcr landsman. Dr. Shraga Kallai, or as he was known in Boiberke, Fcivcl Schlcidcr. Replying ...

And the late Morris or Moishc Lcib Zuch. was one of the builders of the Kibut/ Bath Alpha. All in all. I should say that it was a very considc-rablc return for the comparatively small investment. I am certain that others of that original group contributed in equal measure to Israel’s growth. From Vienna Haber and Heifer proceeded to Boibcrkc. where they met with the local committee to which they handed over the S5.000, less the money which they expended for the train tickets for the Boiberker halutzim to T ricstc ...
