  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 390 {y94}
    ... girl was happy in her work. She was intelligent and did her job diligently and with devotion. Leah worked in Father’s office for many years. Before leaving the shtetl in order to join her family in France she brought her younger sister, Sarah, to replace her, and spent several months training her in all the aspects of office and secretarial work. Sarah REB. ITSHE FENSTER, THE TAYLOR dark brown beard was nicely combed and so he stood by the "Aron Kodesh" (Ark) saying the Sabbath pra-yer "Lechoh Nerannenah". Seeing the dignified face of this Jewish craftsman standing in the synagogue per-forming his Sabbath prayers, you had the impression that this ordinary hard-working man was transformed into a mystical Hassidic Rabbi preparing to conduct the "tisch" (table) right after the prayers ...
  • Dobromil Yizkor Book (1980), image 99 {y140}
    ... are you anxious to know where I slept? On the topmost outer level of the oven, with a closed window through which I could sec when it was dawn. Fridays I had no need to look. The ,,balabusta" would rise early to bake "chaleh," and when she fired up the oven, what do you think? My mattress was a sack stuffed with husks of groats which heated up fast. And small wild life, both brown and white, were also not lack-ing. So to get away alive I had to meekly ("bimchilah") creep down and so anyway set down to work, even when it had been two in the morning when I had crept up the chimney to sleep. This house was so overrun with (un-mentionables) that my own parents would not let me stay over a night to sleep with them. Once each week I would go to the sweat-bath and hang my underwear up to fumigate ...
  • Husiatyn Yizkor Book (1968), image 291 {y198}
    ... stores and homes with immunity and carry the loot to their huts. One night there was a salvo of shots, and in the morning it was ascertained that the stores had been ransacked and several women had been raped during the attack. Frompol boasted of a courageous group of young Jews, and we called a meeting at the home of Abraham Brown who lived in the center of town and owned a pharmacy. We decided to form a group for self-defense. We elected Brown as chairman and I was elected secretary and organizer of this group. Everything was fine, but where would we get arms to protect ourselves? We found some rifles among our own men but we felt that this was hardly enough for the 25 youths who comprised our group. In the town of Kippin, some 20 miles away, was stationed the staff ...
  • Kalusz Yizkor Book (1980), image 572 {y218}
    ... Eliezer- Jacob; and Ychiel Shapiro. Itzik was the oldest. Eliezer-Jacob was a frail man of middle height. When he walked in the street he looked like a shadow gliding past. Yehiel Shapiro loomed over the other two. He was one of those men who could not escape notice. He was tall, with blue eyes set in a rotund, radiant face. His beard and sidelocks were a coppery light brown, and his voice was ringing and resonant. Yehiel was a Chortkover Hassid, who prayed in the Chortkov synagogue. He was a scholar and also the town cantor; on the High Holy Days he conducted the services in the shul. The shul was the official town synagogue, and the members who prayed there were not Hassidim. The members of the Yad Harutzim prayed in the ante- room, but because the shul was the official synagogue, Yehiel ...
  • Mielnica Yizkor Book (1994), image 341 {y323}
    ... seen, but no names and dates were visible. Nearby the ancient cemetery there was the "old" cemetery, very close to the Beit-Midrash. Many trees grew there and it looked from a distance like a small forest. The Heder (religious elementary school) japers used to slip away to the cemetery, pick there small unriped pears, edible only after keeping them for some time in straw and getting a brown color... The children, however, could not afford waiting until the pears ripen, and they used to eat them while still green, and then their mothers faced the problems of their children's stomach aches. Also apples of similar kind grew there wild, uncultivated. There was a fruit tree at the head-rest of every tombstone, the trees and bushes grew densely, so that one could hardly pass ...
