    ... und sich also Samstags den Bedarf ihrer Viktualien für die ganze Woche besorgen muss: Es drängt sich demnach durch dieses Vorausge-sagte die Überzeugung von selbst auf, dass d) dieser Übelstand der Sache auf den Preis der Dinge, auf die ersten und unentbehrlichsten Lebensbedürfnisse den nachteilig-sten Einfluss nehmen und das Publikum in beiden Staedten die-sen Nachteil 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... together and that there will be no war. People are laying up some foodstuffs. This we cannot do, not because, perish the thought, we cannot afford the money, but because we have no room for storing flour, nor do we have a stove for baking bread. We did our best with 5 kgs. salt and 1 kg. sugar.. Never mind, there is no lack of staples such as potatoes, butter and eggs in the vicinity. Today Yutta, the daughter of my late sister Shein-del Haraz, is getting married. Last week I was still worrying about how to get to the wedding. Today I am exempt from such worries — as things are it is inadvisable for Jews to travel. Everywhere soldiers, and civilians too, show the Jews no mercy. I was satisfied with just a "Mazel Tov". I am honestly ...

    ... income. As of the year 1765. the net income to the Mayor was 1324 zlotys and the expenses to keep up his office. 346 zlotys. In 1687. the Saymek. or Congress in Warsaw, advised the deputies from Boibcrkc and Yanow that the townships could again forego all taxes, since the townships had suffered from fires which had destroyed all their houses. In order again to help Boibcrkc to better its economic conditions. King August III permitted the town to have four fairs each year instead of two. Each fair lasted for several days, and the benefit to Boiberkc was considerable. In 1773 Boiberkc. along with all of Galicia, was annexed by Austria. In the early years Boibcrkc belonged to the Zlotchowcr District; later the town was made part of the Bcrziancr District. In 1780 ...

    ... details, yet, in spite of our inability to imagine the horrible events, we were well aware of the terrible tragedy that had overtaken our families. No words can describe the atmosphere at the camp that evening. We had all been orphaned, our loved ones killed, our homes destroyed. Here we were, in the hands of merciless killers who were preparing a similar end for us. Would it not be better to put an end to such a hopeless, meaningless existence ? Like a herd encircled by slavering beasts of prey we huddled together, without a word of comfort for each other. Later on we lay down on the boards for a night that had no end. Each one of us tried to rationalize the tragedy, but it was useless to do so. From every corner rose the sound of weeping and in the camp with the terrible ...
