    ... were led over to a camp that was called "Official" (a forced work camp for Jews District Krakow, in Section Bochnia). After the November action all remaining Jews received a white piece of linen 7 cm. x 7 cm. with the letter "R" which meant "ammunition produc-tion", along with a running number with a stamp from the Security Police in Krakow. This one had to be worn on the breast. These same procedures were introduced in the camps of Krakow-Jerozolimska, Tar-now, Rzeszow and Przemysl. In the camps near Krakow our comrades suffered from terrible hunger. We managed to get permission to take flour from the giant warehouse in which large amounts had accumulated that had belonged to the bakeries of the murdered Jews. We managed to send several hundred loaves of bread a week to the camp ...

    ... the "Gvurah" (might) of the Grandfathers. In this respect my "Zajde" was no exception. In the steam bath my Grandfather would climb to the highest step in tht bath and from there call to the bathkeeper, Shmuel Zajnvel, "please pour one more pail of hot water on the stones because it is cold here." Shmuel Zajnvel gave my "Zajde" the answer, "it looks as if there is a frost in hell..."

    ... a great din fills the air. Human voices combine with the neighing of horses, the mooing of cows and the clucking of hens. Part of the square is filled with tripods covered with boards that are joined and tied together and hung with laborers’ boots made of coarse, rough leather with iron cast heels. These are sold by the gentile shoemakers of the poverty-stricken farms in the "Borkowka" and the "Yakliss", the outskirts of the shtetl. Improvised peddler’s booths surround the regular stores, selling haberdashery, toys and cheap fabrics. During the winter, the pcddler-women sit outside in the snow and the biting frost, huddled up in all the

    ... One Sunday in January, 1911, the camp manager suddenly appeared and ordered all the nine persons to **vanish** in two hours’ time. He said that we could go wherever we wanted. Later he added : "1 am not going to dirty my hands with you lousy Jews, you will die, anyhow, like dogs". We, at once, left the camp. Everyone of us turned to wherever he could go. Outside was a strong frost. Both I and my son were poorly clad, or better to say, we were **naked and barefooted". We went to a peasant, an acquaintance of ours in the village Swidowa. As we entered the house he became very frightened. We looked like living dead men. In our despair we proposed to him to give us a hiding-place or shoot us on the spot. The peasant took pity and gave us food. Afterwards, he dug in the pig stall a deep ...

They were considered rather uncultured (,prost’), only on Shabbos were they seen at the Big Synagogue, on the side where the poorer folk were found. They were all bronzed from the sun, like real peasant people. They were free from any fear at all, and even used to go to sleep on a pile of hay right near those who were buried. With my father I would always visit the grave of my grandfather Berish Issachar of blessed memory who lived ...
