    ... for bargains in the market. A lively bargaining goes on between the Jewish women and the villagers. Each hen and duck is felt all over; their behinds are breathed on to reveal the skin under the feathers and its level of fat. As the buyers look for all the malformations known to man in the prof-fered goods, they offer a price far below that which has been asked : the butter is as pale as lime; the In the case of a respectable farmer, things arc more complicated. He enters with his whip under his arm, as befits a man of property. His intention is to buy, but seeing so many useful things around him, he cannot withstand the temptation ! The expe-rienced saleswoman discerns him at once and the alarm is given : "Nu ! Look !" The "arel" with the eyes (uncircumcised one) is a 'lackucher ...

    186 RABBI YOSSELE WEBER the whole congregation right up to the bitter end. living through all the suffering and the tortures with The Jews were so deeply sunk in misery that it is hard to know just how much need they had of a Rabbi’s services in those fearsome years. Indeed it is doubtful whether the Rabbis, who were the first victims of the worst atrocities perpetrated by the accursed sadists, and had been brought as low as human beings could be, were capable of finding solutions for the endless calamities then raining down upon the Jews who were ...

    ... of a sadistic brutality the like of which was unknown in human history. These select few realized that the sufferings of the Jews were completely unmerited and this fact increased their respect for them. Sophia Woychek who described the ,,action" in detail, is conscious of the terrible tragedy and is touched by it. No man capable of human feelings could remain indifferent to their bitter fate. Stanislav Rogovsky may also be counted among those chosen few. His sympathy and warmth towards the unhappy victims find expression in his writing, particularly so in his identification with his protago-nist, Shlomo Adler. He tries to describe the Jewish tragedy as seen through the prism of Shlomo Adler, symbol of the whole Jewish community. His helplessness in the face of his destiny ...

    ... a woman Mrs. Ho-rowitz had brought with her from her birthplace, Tschortkow. She was a simple, illiterate Ruthenian who became a part of the family. A lonely spinster, she was devoted to the children whom she tended from the day of their birth, and loved them with all her heart. Such loyalty is truly remarkable — she accompanied her mistress to the bitter end in spite of the misfortunes of the family. Her name was Anna Tsaban. (Translated by Herzlia Dobkin, Haifa) There was a second-class court house in our town, Brzozow — a municipal court or "Sond Grodtsky" in Polish. Only one Jewish judge served among all the others — Dr. Leon Horowitz, a man universally respected for his integrity ...

    ... Among the kindly inhabitants we found a warm home with the Isserliss and Leber families. We also became good friends with the Ru-hatiner, Shitz, Markovitz. Blumenrcich, Rozmarin, Schmutz and other families — good people who, like the rest of the village, went to great trouble for us and for other refugees in the village, giving their help and support. When one remembers the sincere generosity and the bitter fate of those wonderful Jews, it is enough to break one’s heart. Ben-Zion Shochat, may God avenge him, was among the most active in solving the refugees’ prob-lems. This wonderful man never rested until every one of them had found some shelter. His own apart* ment of two small rooms and kitchen was made to house some ten people. He and his wife gave up their beds and went to sleep ...
