    ... accommodation. The older the child became, the more strenuous his studies and the more severe the discipline. At the age of nine (9) he would rise about 6 A.M. and learn until about 8, davin, go home for breakfast and was off to school. By two (2) P.M. he was back in Cheder until four. Then he was free until after the evening services when another two hour session in Cheder followed. Somewhere in between, the child squeezed in his homework for school and Cheder and enjoyed such relaxation as was available to him. The lot of the girls was easier. They were not required to attend Cheder, neither were they subjected to its discipline. They obtained some private tutoring in Hebrew reading and attended the regular public school.

    ... imparted them to the class at frequent intervals. When communism was considered a threat to Polish interests, she represented the Jew as a communist. When uncmploy-ment and strikes in the industrial cities were the scourge of the country, the Jew was painted by her as the plutocrat who exploited Poland's sons of labor. A Jewish boy who protested and branded her allegations as untrue was severely punished. Fight between Jewish and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain. The boys devc-loped a method to ease the pain ...

In Baranow, "Kohol" consisted of a number of members whose presiding officer was the Rosh Hakohol. This body was elected periodically by umver-sal male suffrage. The periods preceding elections were marked by heated arguments between the factions, which occasionally reached face slapping proportions. Moreover, the elections were not always conducted in the best democratic traditions. Since the law prescribed that the elections were to be certified by the Starosta (head of the county) the party favored by the government {the Rov's Party) usually won. An election which gave the Zionist parly a majority was invalidated, a new Kohol appointed ...

    ... to a premature end. Our situation after the liberation, by the Soviets became more difficult than before the Nazi occupation. The non-Jewish population, as well as the Soviet government could not forgive the fact that we remained alive. They saw in us an unwanted remnant. They, as well as we. were waiting for the day when we could leave the place forever. Finally that day arrived. According to on agreement between Poland and the Soviet Union, we were allowed to leave the town our fathers and forefathers lived in. We left it with tears in our eyes, to start our lives anew and never to forget all those, who didn't survive. We left behind a big empty synagogue, a desolate peoples center and a large cemetery, filled with massgraves. NEVER NEVER SHALL WE FORGET YOU OUR DEAR ONES י י Group ...
