The Zionist Organization consisted of three major factions—the General Zionists, Revisionists, and Mizrachi. With the exception of the periods pre-cceding elections to the Zionist Congress, the three factions lived in complete harmony. In general the individual factions were not too partisan in their ideological distinction. care of the poor As the economic conditions of the Jews in Poland deteriorated (mainly as a re-suit of deliberate discriminatory legislation by the government) ever incrcas-ing numbers of Jews "took to the road."

    ... sense of outrage with the German nation which reached the highest level of cruelty, comparable only to that of wild animals." The answer was only con-The answer was impressive but hardly believable. Our next visit was to our former housekeeper Aniela R3ytar; there we received some information. According to her a young Jewish man named Klauser, from the town of Domaradz was a member of the Polish partisan resistance (The Native Polish Army — A.K.). Before the Soviet army’s arrival he was snatched out by his Polish comrades. I was also told that on Liberation Day, the Jewish lawyer Is-rael Kuflik was seen on the streets of Brzozow but never seen him again. Solomon Mener, a Jew from Brzozow, was hidden by a Polish family near the cemetary with the same result. No one knew what happened ...

However, a short time later, Heinz did succeed in creating a non-party-affiliated popular library, with a rich catalog of Hebrew, Yiddish, Polish, and German books. The popular library was established when Heinz placed at the disposal of the na-tional Jewish parties the huge sum of 5,000 kroner (an enormous contribution at that time). Over the course of four decades this institution (Biblioteka Ludowa) served as a source of culture and knowledge for the Jewish youth of Chrzanow.

Salo Kanal and Milck Gottlieb left for the forests of Niepolomicc. The boys who were trained by the PPR were left to their own devices by the Polish guide of the PPR as soon as they reached the forest. The anti- cipated contact with the partisan group failed to materialize. They were wandering around the forest unable to perceive the truth that they had indeed been deceived. Their supplies dwindled, and they did not know whether to return to the city or re- main in the forest.

Amongst the Partisans were a number of antisemites and many times things happened to the Jews and especially to the Jews in the fighting units. A number of Jews were killed by their friends and commanders with no reason or transgression. I remember a Jewish boy who was killed by a Russian Partisan from Moscow. The winter of 1943-44 was my second in the forest. Another enemy apart from the Germans, Ukrainians and the gangs was the unbearable cold and snow. Our movements were limited in the snow and we always left footprints while escaping from the enemy.
