    ... Wochernmarkt beschränkt ist 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... Community of Lemberg. The first documents in which the Jewish Community of Boibcrkc was mentioned was dated the 17th of December 1625. In that document from the Sejm (or Congress) of Poland, of which Boibcrkc was a part, it is noted that since the city and other nearby towns had been burned, they should all forego taxes for five years. The four fairs during the year helped Boibcrkc to better its economy. In 1717 the Boibcrkcr Jewish community paid 473 zlotys in taxes. But the Jews there were not pleased with the method for portioning In 1502. Boibcrkc was again invaded by the Turks, and once more most of the houses were burned. This was repealed in 1518-19 and this time King Alexander had to forego taxes for eight years. In the second half of the 16th century the town ...

    ... 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 ...
