    ... tief empfinden muss. Die Butter z.B. welche ein vorzüglicher Gegenstand des Wochen-marktes im Monat Mai und Juni ist, wo sich viele Haushaltungen gewöhnlich den Bedarf schon für den bevorstehenden Winter an-zuschaffen pflegen, würde gewiss um 30, 40, auch 50 Prozent wohlfeiler sein, wenn für beide Städte statt eines, zwei Wochenmärkte existieren möchten.- Die Erfahrung hat gelehrt, dass die Butter, welche anfänglich mit 18 Groschen gekauft wurde, an demselben Markttage noch mit 30 auch mit 40 Groschen bezahlt werden musste. - Warum? Weil das Verlangen zu stark war und der Verkäufer aus der Zudringlichkeit des Käufers ge-wohnlich seinen Vorteil zieht und dieser soweit als möglich zu treiben die Gelegenheit benützt und ebenso verhält es sich mit allen anderen Artikeln und besonders ...

    ... us and tried to explain in Russian what was happening. He said to me in Yiddish : "Don’t break your teeth on Russian. Speak your mother tongue." He was a Jew. He told the police to let us go. We were like madmen. We must have looked very frightening, leaping, shouting, haggard skeletons. A lot of boys died because they over-ate in those first few days of freedom. They ate butter by the handful and anything else could find. And their sys-terns couldn’t cope. They got dysentery and died. It was terrible. Others had nervous breakdowns — men I thought were as tough as nails who could take anything in camp. But once the war was all over it hit them. All their families, their homes, everything gone... I don’t believe it could happen again. I think the Jews are different ...

He was the last Rabbi Baranow was privileged to have. Unlike his predecessors Reb Avigdor was social minded. Though lacking the scholarly eminence of his father, he was the one instrumental in con-verting the large Besdin room into a center of learning. Here the "BETTER" lx›ys spent many hours poring over Talmudic tomes. The Rov himself conducted a shiur with some of the more promising boys. He saw in Zionism the very antithesis of Orthodoxy.

    ... against such elements that we are ordered "not to for-get". As this is a memorial document which is meant for the coming generations, it should include the past history, because the life of the community was full of national and cultural events; Beicz was not a community of gyp-sies or of degenerated people, its men were cultured, they held high human and national ideals and aimed for a better and peaceful world. We should therefore devote out time to express all we know about the past, and all those who can help to fulfill this holy task will be welcome and blessed. We repeat to our brethren in America that they are welcome to write in any language they please; it is the contents that matters, the perpetuation of a destroyed community, and this should be an ever-lasting ...

    ... worked hard and long hours, since the trade unions were still in their infancy and could render little assistance. They managed from time to time to send money to their families whom they had left in Boibcrkc. Eventually they During the latter part of the 19th century many Jews of eastern Galicia, including many from our township of Boibcrkc, sought to better their economic condition by emigrating. Most of them went to the United States, where they knew that able-bodied men willing to work could earn a fairly good living. There was a valid reason for their eagerness to leave Boiberke. The town was situated in eastern Galicia, a province of the Austria-Hungarian Empire, which had its industries in other provinces, chiefly in Bohemia (now Chechoslovakia) and Upper Austria.
