    ... . In the winter he used to drop in to our house to warm up. When my brother met him on Rivington Street, he was dressed in a dark suit and a dirby hat and his chest was ornamented with a golden watch and chain which in those days was usually purchased from a pedlcr on payments of a dollar a week. When my brother asked him, Mordchy Hersh. how arc things with you, you look prosperous? his reply was. "everything would be all right but the food isn’t as good as in Boiberke. The meat, isn't meat, the beer isn’t beer." My brother looked at him and thought, "here is a man who perhaps had a piece of meat once a week on the Sabbath in Boiberke and a glass of beer only if by chance someone treated him, and here he has plenty of everything but is complaining." Nevertheless, he lived out his years ...

In most instances the greater part of Jewish trade had its start not in open stores but in so called "stands" where a variety of merchandise was dis-played to attract the customer and enable him to select and purchase the necessary items. Reb. Chaim Leib was not an exception in this respect because he also started with a stand which later turned into a successful and prosperous business. The majority of the houses at that time were Among the experienced Jewish merchants in Brzo-zow the personality of Reb. Chaim Leib Diller was prominent. He was not actually born in Brzozow, but came from the shtetl of Bukowsko near Sanok.

    ... who showed Boehm a map of the projected ghetto. All of these plans were pure fantasy. In February 1943 all the Jews of Chrzanow were deported. THE JUDENRAT AND THE GERMAN AUTHORITIES Contacts between the Judenrat and the local German officials were carried out on more than the official level. The Judenrat had close relations with some of the Ger-man officials, thanks to various gifts and bribes. However, the Judenrat's closest contacts were with the police, headed by Oberleutenant Schindler.
