    ... from the synagogues, cleaned up the mess and ran all the messages. When, God forbid, there was a death in the house and the bereaved family was prostrated — it was they who did all the chores, pouring out the water from all the pails and barrels in the corridor and covering the bed of the deceased and the mirrors in the room after he had been removed from the house.

It has been a labor of love and devotion. During all that time I suffered many a nightmare and fearful dreams. Having identified myself so com-pletely with the subject I am no longer objective about it. But it seems to me that when we read A monument to the Jews of the Shtetl. built on the path leading ...
