I don't remember who else was in the play. One comic incident should be mentioned here. We needed a donkey to take Isaac to the altar. But where could we find a donkey in Chrzanow? Reb Mordechai Blitzer had a billy goat, and David and Leyb Blitzer, his sons, were members of our society. (David was our prompter, and he did the job well.) We borrowed the billy goat to use instead of a donkey. We played in a large room in Berish Frister's house, on a stage hammered together with boards. Among the audience were the two daughters of the goat's owner, en-joying the scene. When the time came for Isaac to ride to the altar ...

    ... The Jewish Nationalist Movement overcame every obstacle. Energy, patience, and stubbornness on the part of the Labor Zionists strengthened the organization at a time when the Bund ruled the hearts and minds of a large number of workers. In a short while the Labor Zionists, thanks to their energetic activist Mordechai Shor, 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 ...

    ... to plead for her mother. The murderers shot the two women and the two children to death. They singled out for special atrocities some Jews who were wearing a tallis koton. First they beat them bloody. Then they ordered them to dip the tallis koton in the blood and polish the German boots with them. Then they continued to beat them brutally until they died. Among these victims were Shlomo Blitzer of Lipnica and Pinhas Rosmarin of Kolbuszowa. Next they turned on a number of beautiful young girls. They undressed them naked and thrust their hands into their most intimate parts looking, as they claimed, for concealed valuables. While this was going on at the square, another S.S. unit and some policemen were in the alleys from which the Jews had come. Anyone they met was shot. They thus killed ...

Twardon demanded the addition of two more men to the Jewish police force and Zerubavel Gewirtz and I were the two appointed. I kept order when food was distributed in the public kitchen, guarded the entrance to the ghetto, and 3 or 4 times a week I was sent to Rzeszow and Mielec to purchase the supplies for the kitchen.
