After Poland was liquidated, the Austrian government began to collect the taxes which the Jewish Communities of Galicia still owed to Poland and among them. Boiberke owed as much as 126 Florins. In addition to all these taxes, the Jewish communities had to buy war bonds for the war of 1794-1799. Another edict was issued that every Jew who was nine months behind in payment of taxes should be expelled from Galicia.

In 1791 there was a census among the Jewish population of the Bcrziancr ...

The Rabbi answered : 44There is no real choice here; you must eat the army rations, its a question of life and death. I ask but one thing of you : when they give you meat, promise me that you will not lick the bones ! 44The moral," continued my Father, 44is that secular studies are necessary and indispensable, but there is no need to 44lick" them !

    ... banked up the mud near the entrances to the houses. They also collected the junk and the garbage which had collected in the back-yards. Be-fore the Holy-Days they were sent to the "shochet" (ritual slaughter) loaded with heavy baskets of fat-tened hens and ducks while the most they could ex-pect for themselves in all these rich repasts were a few bones to suck. They helped in times of trouble and in times of joy. For family celebrations they carried in the ben-ches and tables from the synagogues, cleaned up the mess and ran all the messages. When, God forbid, there was a death in the house and the bereaved family was prostrated — it was they who did all the chores, pouring out the water from all the pails and barrels in the corridor and covering the bed of the deceased and the mirrors ...

We still keep in touch with each other. After the war was over I found out that I was the only surviver from my entire family. My weight was 96 pounds, a body of mere skin and bones and not knowing what to do with my life. I remembered that my parents had mentioned that there was some family in the United States. I started to write letters and it took around six months before my letter was answered. Four sisters on my mother’s side lived in New York.
