    ... BOOK 74 most respected citizens of the ghetto to his office and told them that the tyrant Twardon demanded that they shave off their beards. Disobedience meant instant death. They were: my father Itsche Saleschutz; Yossef-Hayyim Anfang; Hersch Kleinman; Osher Dershowitz; Hendl Ginsberg; Moshe-Yossef Berle; Israel Hofferc; Yaakov Kirshenbaum; Hirch-Yaakov Silber; Moshe Fenichel; Kalman Birenbaum; Shulcm Sher; Kiva Schmidt; Kiva Auch- hisiger and Hersch Kinstlich. Shaving their beards was for these pious men a "taste of death itself". A few days later Paszek again had to inform them that Twardon demanded 5 kilo of gold. The Judenrat began to collect the gold. Quarrels erupted, for the few who had a little gold left were hoarding it for the worst emergency. When, however, only 3V2 kilo ...

    ... for a Jewish person to travel at that time in Poland. I now asked the daughter if she had any of the things which could serve as mementos. She crossed her heart and with tears in her eyes replied that nothing was left from her mother... When we began talking she told me that after the liquidation of the Jews from Brzozow, two sisters and a brother from the Birnbaum family, the Chey-der teacher Josef Aaron Birnbaum was their father, lived in a ruined house in Borkowka. According to the daughter’s story, Mrs. Bargiel would throw a loaf of bread into the hiding place, until they were discovered one day and as the result of a Polish informant taken by the Gestapo. It was very difficult for me to decide whether or not to enter the apartment in which I had lived. As I mentioned earlier ...

    ... "kinig* lach", from the word "king", and in Polish "krolicki". When the fair is over these young men bring the skins to some merchants who collect them in quantity then "export" them. Anything sent outside the shtetl’s borders is called "export". One of the dealers in these royal "kiniglach" is Leibush Horovitz, a young Yeshiva student, blonde and short-bearded and active in the "Mizrachi". Mendel Birnbaum, his friend in the party, jokingly called him, "Melech Malchei Hamlachim" — der kinig iber alle kiniglach" (the King of Kings). One of the shtetl’s fools hanging around the market was one day attracted by the noise and bustle of buying and selling and, like everybody else, bought himself a "kinigel" fur which he paid for with the coins begged from the kind-hearted village women ...

    ... to Berish Kleber, a Jewish night watchman, I managed to get the two comrades out of jail. Among the shining Jewish luminaries which Chrzanow often heard was Dr. Yits-khok Shifer, who was very fond of Chrzanow and closely connected with the city. When Dr. Shmuel Cyfer was inducted into the Austrian army during World War I, Dr. Yitskhok Shifer took over his practice, and lived in Chrzanow for a while. Berl Loker, too, was always happy to come to Chrzanow. The magnificent Dr. Natan Birnbaum always related that as a young man, when he passed through town on his way to Vienna, he always stopped in Chrzanow for a couple of hours. Once, on Purim, he laughed loudly on seeing a Jew in costume, wearing a silk coat and a shtreimel, riding a horse and carrying an etrog and a lulav. Dr. Natan ...
