  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 385 {y94}
    ... with the whole Diaspora in Europe, were swept away to be drowned in a sea of blood. In commemorating the shtetl and its inhabitants it is our duty to mention Yehoshua, God rest his soul, who devoted most of his time and energy to the commemoration of our martyrs. Every year until his death, he would organize the days of memorial; saw to it that a memorial tablet was placed in the cellar of the Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem, initiated and managed the "Charity Fund" named for the martyrs of our town. Yehoshua attempted to bring out a Memorial Book in his time and contacted some of our people for the purpose. He talked to them, trying to per-suade them to realize the importance of such a pro-ject, but finally gave up for lack of response. Now that his dream has been ...

    ... those days through the prism of the Holocaust which ended it all. In the light of the final cataclysm those years could seem idyllic, though nothing was farther from the actual reality. Hatred of the Jews was deeply rooted in Poland. The independence achieved by that country at the end of the 1st World War was accompanied by a wave of pogroms and looting. The orgiastic bestiality of General Heller’s gangs of soldiers — the "Hel-lertshiks" is notorious to this very day. After some years of relative calm under General Pilsudski, anti-semitism again raised its head with ever-increasing brutality. These facts are, admittedly, well-known, but it is necessary to restate them, if only in the light of the facts mentioned above. The 30’s were years of economic crises and general unrest ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 528 {y94}
    ... glass spirits improve and the funny sides of deals begin to emerge. One blabbermouth boasts, to the admiring laughter of his companions, how he got one better of a Jew. selling him shoddy goods at a fantastic price. The publican at the counter fills up the "halbos" (beer mugs) from shining nickel taps fixed in the wall in a kind of buffet. The beer comes straight from a large barrel in the cellar where it is kept cool. The waiters, carrying trays loaded with foamy "halbos", make their way with difficulty through the customers standing around, wailing for a table to be vacated after those drinking beside it roll down under-neath, and can be thrown out of the pub. Two neighbouring farmers who had had many a quarrel and were now in a state of uneasy cease-fire, call to each ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 529 {y94}
    ... the deals are closed quickly. These butchers, the "hazerniks", always get the best of the farmer, practically stealing his product at half price because of his fear of bargaining with them too much. The main business is conducted between the goyim, the horse merchants and the Jewish butchers. The haggling here is not in groshen but in gorden zlotis, with each party refusing to yield. The seller begins "high", quoting an intentionally steep price that will allow him to give a reduction. The buyer rebuts by offering a ridiculously low price. At this stage things are not yet serious. When both sides realize that nothing can come of this they get down to earth and there are indications of a compromise. The reductions and the increase get smaller and smaller — a prac-tical stage has been ...

    ... no idea whether he has sold it or not. Nor does she trust him with the money in his possession. She therefore gives in and quickly gets rid of the goods. In the afternoon, after the fair, we see a different picture. The very same woman who that morning, while buying the hen. complained of its skinniness, and is now become its seller, points out its advantages one by one to her prospective customer as she indicates the meatiness of this "beauty", so full of fat, touch wood ! But the customer rejects all the praises, regailing the seller with all the linguistic pearls she herself had mouthed to the farmer’s wife that morning, but much improved by the "balabusteh". Another kind of product sold in the platz was rabbit skin. These rabbits were kept by the farmers in the barns, where they ...
