In 1920 it changed its name from The Organization of Jewish Women for the Supervision of Orphans to The Society for the Protection of Jewish Orphans. This worthy cause was sup-ported by Brzezany emigrants to the U.S.A. and particularly by the family of Isaac and Rosalie Feld from Philadelphia. Thanks to this aid an Orphans-home was built on Strazhacka street. The majority of the 32 orphans, of both sexes, were taken in and brought up in this home. They received a thorough basic education and in addition an occupational training, so that they could later take care of themselves. This Orphans-home ceased to function when Second World War broke out. The destiny ...

He held most of the influential posts in our provincial town: Deputy Mayor, Head of the Jewish congregation and member in all kinds of committees and important institutions.

About 25,000 Jews were transported in that ship-ment to Auschwitz, where the notorious Dr. Mengele "selected" 500 Jews. The rest went straight to the gas chambers. We had to run about 200 metres past soldiers who were hitting us with their rifles, says Mr. Filler. "If you started to bleed, you went to the chambers — although of course we didn’t know that at the time. I got to Mengele with Ben beside me. *,How old" he said. Twenty. Occupation ? Baker. And he waved us to one side, which meant we lived.

By the time we are taken out of our graves we will have been asphi-xiated, non-existent, dust to be dispersed over the seven seas. Then every man of culture, of decency, will think himself obliged to grieve for us and eulo-gize us. As our shadows flit across the cinema screens, sensitive ladies will wipe their eyes with their per-fumed handkerchiefs and weep for us : "Oh ! the poor creatures ! ’’ We know: we shall never get out of here alive. The Devil himself has written on the gate of this inferno : "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here ! ’’ We want to confess, a "Shma Israel" for the coming generations. It will be the confession ...
