    ... Yankel (Yaakov) Israel Hersh (Henry) and Meyer. The year 1914, at the outbreak of World War I, was severely tragic and painful for Reb. Chaim Leib. He lost his wife and his son Yankel was mobilized as a soldier in the Austrian army. Left a widower with two young children, he remarried a Brezover woman from the Estreicher family and she bore him five children. The vagaries of the war compelled many people to flee, with the result that their stores were plun-dered. When the war ended Reb. Chaim Leib was forced to start all over again. Once again he sue-ceeded and found the energy to rebuild the business. This did not last too long because in 1918, after Poland became an independent nation, the anti-Semitic wave generated by 44pogroms" resulted in the devastation of Jewish existence ...

    ... bar-racks, etc. The leader of the Jewish Council was M. Knebelbart. .All 01 the Jewish shops were requisitioned, but we were lucky because our bakery was necessary to feed the German army and we were recognized as the "official" Jewish bakery from whom the Jews in Brzozow could buy one loaf of bread per family a week for a coupon. A curfew was imposed on all the Jews and we had to wear white armbands with a blue Magen David on our right arms all the time. In the beginning of 1940, I was ordered to go to Dynow, a nearby town, along with several other men, '0 dispose of the corpses of Jews murdered in that town a few months pro-viously. We had to rebury them in a mass grave in the Jewish cemetery in Dynow. There were many Jews shot by Germans at that time, for no apparent reason ...

    ... no one ran away. Whoever could not work any longer was shot and buried on the spot, and the work went on. One day while carrying a railroad switch with a wooden con-traption, I slipped and broke my left shoulder. After a short time of staying in the barracks with a little doctor’s care, I returned to work. Twice during the concentration camp period I was beaten for no reason by the watchdogs, so that my whole body was black and blue and I was unable to sit. From Plaszow we went to Skarzysko where the Germans had several large grenade factories. My job was outside, cutting down trees and working with spades and wheelbarrows. Again, rain or shine wc had to do hard work with practically no food in our bellies. The last camp was Buchenwald where I changed my name and registered ...

    ... a dry piece of bread, without any real chance of achieving that goal. The cars moved at great speed, which in our jumbled positions, made our condition catastrophic. Having come to the con-elusion that they had nothing to lose, four youths from Brzozow used this hilly journey to make a bold escape. The Gestapo, following behind us in their cars, were on an upgrade. As soon as those attempting to flee were out of the line of sight (of the Gestapo), they jumped into the ditch and hid there. Later on I heard that these youths returned to Brzozow, hid there until the evictions began, and then were taken to an extermination camp along with the other Jews. We were taken to a train station at a holiday resort, Ivonitz. On side rails, were waiting two closed cars used for transporting cattle, with ...
