  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 435 {y94}
    ... 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 ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 530 {y94}
    ... "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 ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 389 {y114}
    ... 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 ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 462 {y114}
    ... , the two brothers Blitzer, Chaim Wiener and, first and foremost, the eternally youthful Motl Rosner m/b/a, began to make headway among the workers. Their fre-quent meetings, speeches, and entertainments brought new life to town. Thanks to the Labor Zionists and their activities on behalf of Jewish culture in general, Chrzanow soon was graced with such world-famous guest speakers as Dr. Natan Birnbaum (Matisyohu Akhar), Dr. Chaim Zhitlowsky and Dr. Yitschok Schiper. Zionist labor leaders such as Berl Loker, Leah Chazanowitsh, and (Casriel) Nachman Mifelev were frequent guests among the Labor Zionists of Chrzanow. Although stagnation was the general rule among the Jewish parties during the war years 1914-1918, since some of the young men were at the front fighting for the Austrian empire ...

    ... front argued over a particular passage in the commentary of Tosafot on the Talmudic trac-tate Sanhedrin. Overhearing this dispute, Reb Chaim said to his son, "You hear, Dovidl? You'd better work hard. If the coachmen are such scholars, can you imagine how brilliant the bourgeoisie must be?" When Dr. Natan Birnbaum b/m (Matisyohu Akhar) was in Chrzanow in the year 1913, he related an anecdote that illustrated his personal impression of Jewish Chrzanow. - As is well known, Dr. Birnbaum was quite distant from Judaism and from Jewish life in general in his younger years. Living in Vienna, he had only the slightest con-nection with the Eastern Jews. Even more: as he expressed it at the time, he felt a cer-tain contempt toward the "unproductive Ostjuden." Once, however, as he was traveling ...
