  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 446 {y94}
    ... come the moment when the balloon of miracles would be emptied and that was the end. Others, whom fate continued to supply with some, were saved. It would take too long to recount the quirks of fate which saved me during my illness. After endless vicissitudes I left the hospital with a painful, swollen leg and managed — in ways too complicated to tell — to get a sitting job. I sat on a large pile of stones which I hammered into little pieces, thus sparing my leg and letting it heal slowly. One Sunday after the muster, as we dispersed to our blocks, I met Hanina Henig, a townsmen and the son of Ber Henig who had left the shtetl in the

    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... the homes. A man opened the store when he got up in the morning and closed it when he retired for the day. This was daily routine. The Bes Midrosh was the focal point of activity—religious, social and political. If one wanted to meet a person he went to the Bes Midrosh toward dusk, met him there and talked over the subject matter. ... enjoy-meat of its followers. To those of the opposing camp, this merited excom-munication. During the summer the town was visited by a touring carousel and the youngsters would be busy riding it. The more sturdy youngsters who helped turn the wheel for nine rides, would gel the tenth one free. Also in summer, swimming in the clear waters of the Krzemenice was a daily occupation of the youth but on Fridays almost every able bodied per-son went bathing. In order to ...
