    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... 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.

Far better that we be lenient with our wayward sons and this would give us the right claim before God : "True, we have sinned, but we are Your sons; as You sec, we, too, have sons of whose behavior we do not approve, but we do not banish them, God forbid. They always remain our chilren and our hearts arc open to them." It once happened that one of the shtetl’s well-known fanatics came running to Father, telling him excitedly that he had seen with his own ...
