    ... Even today friends of mine who lived near us, tell me how they used to stand in- the yard be-hind our windows, listening to the music. We all joined in the choir and my brothers were very good singers. As for the girls, though they were gene-rally not permitted to sing with the boys, Father, for all his devoutness, had nothing against it. It was a habit of Father’s to bless the boys on the eve of Yom Kippur by laying his hands on their heads. He would then turn to the girls and bless them as well. There was something rather frightening in this picture of Father with his white beard and white robe (kittel), and wearing white slippers as

In 1336 Poland assumed dominion over Suwałk as the result of the marital union of Polish and Lithuanian royalty■ In 1795 Prussia became Lord and Master of Suwałk and the Prussians ruled until 1807 when Suwałk took on a French flavor under Napoleons1 rule.

It, no doubt, owes this prominence to its strategic location in the triangular arc! formed by the borders of Poland, Prussia and the Baltic States. The course of events affecting Suwałk Jewry, the stages of humiliation and annihilation at the hands of both the German Nazis and the violently Anti-Semitic Polish, Latvian and Lithuanian peasants, was to be paralleled in the history of the treatment given and the attitudes shown to other Jewish communities unfortunate enough to find themselves under the dreadful yoke of Nazi do-mi nation.

Another list was drawn up designating one boy a week to collect the books strewn on the tables and place them in their respective shelves. The money collected was turned opcr to a treasurer, usually a merchant of good repu-tation. The money was withdrawn only when needed to buy new books or mend the old ones.
