    ... showing the full extent of their shame and degradation. Everyone walked in a shuffling manner, dragging along hesitatingly, as if on a rickety bridge which might break down at any moment. Trying to hug the walls of the houses they instinctively quicken-cd their pace upon nearing the'r destination, being careful, at the same time, not to seem to be on the run, for this would draw the attention of the mur-derers whose breath could be felt on their backs and who were ready to attack them at any moment like voracious dogs. Their eyes seemed to be straining in the dark — no sun shone for them — and they would disappear inside their homes with a deceptive rated rapidly and the'r soldiers began escaping east-wards, with the German armoured divisions giving chase, surrounding them, imprisoning ...

    ... of hours wait in Tarnow at the station we got on a train for the city of Rzeszow. At the nearest station, Debica. a Gesapo official entered the train and asked for pzrmit documents. Since the number of prisoners was quite large he was unable to check each document on an individual basis, there-fore he asked us to raise the permit papers with our right hand. After that procedure he left and we could breath freely once again. In a few hours we arrived at the Rzeszow station where we became aware of the horrible misfortune befallen the Jews of that city. Young Jewish intellectual girls in their best dresses were forced to scrub the floors and even to wash the stones of the railroad station and polish the boots of the German soldiers. The Jewish popula-tion's suffering in Rzeszow was chilling ...

    ... steadily more oppressive. No Jews was to get license to sell tobacco. The Jewish saloon keepers found difficulty in having their licenses renewed notwithstanding the intervention of the Jewish members of the Sejm (parliament). In addition, the non-Jewish element made serious attempts to establish businesses. The famous slogan "Swoj do swego'' (Each to his kind) was much exploited. The clergy, too, took active part in this campaign. The existing laws prohibiting stores from doing business on Sunday were frequently circumvented. The Jewish merchant would find a way to bring the customer into his store through a side entrance. The clergy was not un-aware of this. The priest would leave Mass in church and, in his priestly garb, swoop down on the 1'Marek'' and publicly castigate the visitors ...

    ... road leading to the "Wasserlaeh" (a body of stagnant water) and to Tarnobrzeg (County seat). The "Wasserlaeh" also served modest economic and social functions. Its polluted waters furnished a limited supply of fish for the community. In winter it was used by the non-Jews for ice skating and on Rash Hashono by the Jews for Tashlich. The narrow lane in the north, paved with broad flagstones, led to the cluster of Jewish institutional buildings such as the Bes Midrosh (Syna-gogue), the Rabbi's residence, and the Mikveh. The road on the north-western corner pointed to Dolansky's "Castle" (The Hoif). This was an imposing medieval palace of gargantuan size. During the formation of the Polish government in the days immediately following the conclusion of World War I, Drs. Reich and Sommcrstcin ...

The accuracy of this claim was not established and actual names of deceased arc not available. What is known for certain is that a scries of major fires took place in the 90's of last century. The most damaging one was that in 1898, which caused the central part of town to burn down. The townhall went up in flames and with it all documents that might have shed some light on the history of the township. Baranow was not long in rebuilding. In place of the old wooden hovels new brick structures rose. Consequently Baranow gave the appearance of a young town. The calendar was a casualty of the impact of the fires. Thus, for a long ...
