  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 248 {y32}
    ... By this time he was assumed to have absorbed sufficient knowledge to enable him to learn "on his own", in the spacious Bes Midrosh, sometimes with the assistance of the older boys. The post World War I years ushered in a cultural fermentation, which left its mark on the Jewish youth. In Baranow this was reflected in the way the youth took to avid reading of secular literatures. Time was now divided between the study of the Talmud and that of modern Yiddish-Hebrew-Polish literatures. The synagogue, which earlier emitted echoes of voices of boys poring over the Talmud, was becoming silent part of the day. The midday hours were now devoted to reading newspapers or books of secular content. The mail brought in daily ten Yiddish (Haint), three Polish (Novy Dziennik) and two Hebrew (Hatzfirah ...

    ... with a tower in the center. In the tower was set a clock, visible from all four sides of the town. The tower also bore the crest of Graff Potocki. a five angled cross. Surrounding the base of the townhall, as well as in the courtyard, there were many stores. Most of them belonged to Jewish store-keepers. The second floor of the townhall served as a highschool. Further west, between the houses stood the Greek Catholic church. Behind it was the Arme-nians church and towards the south stood the Catholic church. Close to the south side of the Catholic church stood the statue of Jan Sobieski. On two sides, north and east were platforms, which served as parking spaces for the horses and wagons, belonging to the farmers. Part of this plot was set for the local drivers and porters. All the houses ...

    ... and frequent absences from our home. He had to travel all over the district in legal proceedings connected with land registration. (Mainly in summer, accompanied by court-officials, lawyers and land-surveyors). These journeys were called "Commissions", and sometimes they lasted for several weeks. One of his famous cases involved a right-of-way, which passed through a forest between a Polish vil-lage and the lands of the Bishop of Przemysl. No Christian lawyer dared to defend the people of the Polish village, for fear of the Bishop and the Church The length of the road was only 4 km, and the people of the village had used it for more than a 100 years. After the trial, which went on for 4 years, the local court, the district court and the superior court decided ...

    131 Go find yourself a hiding place, it’s just a matter of days." I put some distance between the village and my-self, went down an incline and reached a small creek. Standing beside the water I took off my filthy shirt and after many months looked at my emaciated body. Skin and dry bones — but this body was my own and there was no one threatening me with a scythe from behind. I could care for it, refresh myself and bathe as much as I wanted. I wasn’t sure it was not a dream. There was no enemy in the vicinity. The Germans had not brought me here, I had simply come of my own free will. Was I now free to move around as I felt inclined ? ...

    ... of this at the time. Entering the Birkenau Camp we went through the shock of confronting the annihilation equipment face to face. We now realized the full horror of the disaster. The sight of the smoking furnaces struck us like a bolt of lightning, paralyzed our senses and drove us mad. Now that the iron gates were firmly locked behind us we were caught firmly between the jaws of the dragon which no longer had need to resort to camouflage. The writer Dinur — K. Katzetnik who appeared in the E:.chmann trial, began to explain the "Auschwitz Planet" to the judges. He tried to reconstruct in his mind all he had been through, fell in a faint and was taken out of the hall on a stretcher, I shall not try to bring back the memories of that inferno, for I am not sure that this ...
