Für mich aber als jüngster Teilnehmer und aktiver Turner, der ich das erste Mal an einem solchen im-posanten Turntechnischen Ereignis teilnahm, war dieses Turnfest ein besonderer Markstein. Kaum waren wir aus Brünn nach Bielitz zurückgekehrt, brach der erste Weltkrieg aus. Dieses weittragende und welterschüt-ternde Ereignis hatte natürlich auf unser gesamtes Vereinsleben einen verheerenden Einfluss. Ein Grossteil der aktiven Turner und führenden Mitglieder des Vereines musste sofort nach Ver-lautbarung der Mobilisierung einrücken und in kurzen Abständen fast die gesamte Herrenriege. Mit meinen 15 Jahren blieb ich fast allein ...

In time and after much labor these farms produced vegetables and fruit, and the small hen-coops supplied eggs and meat as needed. It was also there that their two sons were born, Baruch and Arik.

With the outbreak of the War of Independence he was called up and made responsible for vehicles in one of the large Zahal camps in the vicinity.

We received an order from the Gestapo to raise our permit papers high and with the proper signal of an extended hand, the time came to cross to the other side of the river into the Soviet occupied zone. When I found myself on the other side of the bridge the first thing I said was "Baruch ShcpUranu" (Thank God, that I am rid of them)... Fortunately, there was a Jew waiting there with a horse and car-riage for passengers. The way to Przemysl was a long one because of the damaged bridge.
