  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 525 {y94}
    ... they are practising, a passing Gabbai, hearing the sounds, comes in hurriedly to confiscate the shofar which they had no business taking out of the cupboard in the first place, and bawls the rascals out for the prank which might very well leave the congregation without a shofar on Rosh Hashana, God forbid ! But the beagle is not really angry, for he well remembers himself while still just such a "rascal", and knows well enough that these "tricks" are the training ground for a generation of potential "ba’alei tki’ah" (ritual shofar blowers). In this context a certain event of grave seriousness connected with the shofar comes to mind, one that caused great excite-ment in the shtetl: A Yiddish theatre group was invited to the shtetl to give the "Haddibuk" play. Their appearance ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 530 {y94}
    ... wait till things got better. He would never go asking for the return of his money, trusting the people on his list to do their utmost to discharge the debt. And now, back to the market. While the farmer’s wife is busy selling her pro-duce, the farmer takes his cart, whips his horses into a trot and goes on to the "Targovitza". His cart is an open one, with two ladders placed ... to the village. On market day the side-lad-ders are reinforced by "polkoshiks’ (halves of woven reed baskets, to prevent the goods from falling out). One goes to the "Targovitza" with the heavy produce, such as piglets tied in a sack, squirming like fish in the net, the sound of their screams lost in the general noise of the market. There may also be a fattened pig or a calf, eagerly awaited by the butchers ...
  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 421 {y24}
    ... the story of Suwałk is written to acquaint the living with the tragic events of the past. It is written so that »c may take pride in our heritage, courage in our actions and reinforce our faith in our ultimate survival and rebirth. In rcponing the history of Suwałk we do not concern ourselves with the story of individual Jews but arc primarily concerned with the inner life of the Jews of Suwałk as a whole; their culture, their institutions, their religion — all as expressed by an organized articulate self conscious community of Jews who show their sense of togetherness, or as some all it, their sense of distinctiveness in a concrete manner, whether it be in the political, social, philanthropic or cultural sphere and whether it be in Suwałk itself or in the lands to which these Suwałk Jews ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 254 {y32}
    ... . 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 and for that reason we have endeavoured to do so in this modest volume. Association ...
