    ... Suwałk were in the forefront in the migration from Rastern Europe and that it was as a result of their influence and aid that the orientation of the Jews in the New World changed from a German and Scphardic influence to one of East European domination. The sons of Suwałk helped start a Jewish press in New York, aided in the formation of the Hias, underwrote and founded New York's Beth El Hospital and Su-walker Schules and were responsible for countless other civic and community projects such as the establishmerit of a Suwałk Relief Committe of New York, now in existence for more than 40 years, which continues to be dedicated to the proposition of aiding Suwałk Jews caught in the whirl of history. And so, this chronicle of events is written, not as a replacement for the millions of burned ...

    ... (N. Rozner M.A.) worked in the office of the gentile lawyer Dr. Dobro-volsky. Avraham Levite THE RETARDED AND THE INSANE nent against the village background and formed some of its landmarks. These unfortunates played a certain role in the village economy, though it was not, of course, one to their own advantage. Cruel though it may seem, this role seemed a natural one to a part of the congrega-tion who made them the butt of fun and jokes, while only a few objected to the practice. This was common practice especially in the prayer-houses, the "C10ises", which, beside being a place of prayer, reading and Torah study, also served as a kind of "dub" where the Jews spent most of their time. It was there that tales were told, wine glasses raised in "Le’chai’im", politics discussed ...

In Fegruary of 1943 some news finally reached us of significant changes at the front — the German defeat at Stalingrad. We heard nothing of Rommel’s defeat in Africa, nor would we have been aware 01 its importance...

Two of my townsmen were among the victims of the "Stalingrad Front" : Shamai Zelig and Itchaleh Goldfinger (grandson of Koppel Tzvik), may God avenge them ...

Dass sie trotzdem auch in der Folge nicht unbehel-ligt blieben und Akten der Unduldsamkeit und Gehässigkeit aus-gesetzt waren, dafür führt der Verfasser folgendes Beispiel an: "Ein Beispiel leidenschaftlicher Gehässigkeit bietet die am 3. Februar 1786 gegen den hiesigen tolerirten Jud Hirschl Mendl" vor dem Bürgermeister Christian Krischke, dem Syndicus Jacob Anton Alscher und dem Rathmann Andress Hampel auf dem Rathause zu Bielitz abgeführte Untersuchung, bei welcher die Kläger nichts weniger verlangten, als dass dem Mendl die "Vorkäuf-lerei der Wolle, in Gross-Polen verboten werden möchte, bis Wohin sich selbstverständlich ...
