  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 456 {y94}
    ... town, tense and frightened people with sickly faces and deadened eyes. Their clothes were ragged and. with the white strip bearing the Magen David on their sleeves they walked the streets like prisoners in the prison court-yard (we still knew nothing of concentration camps). Though no guards were to be seen we could sense the machine guns aimed at them. The women’s faces were invisible. The kerchiefs covering their heads were lowered to the eyes and their chins were tucked down into their collars. Not so the men. Having been forced to cut off their beards, their chins were visible and naked, their wrinkled faces showing the full extent of their shame and degradation. Everyone walked in a shuffling manner, dragging along hesitatingly, as if on a rickety bridge which might break down ...

    ... , the market. Sabbath nights, Festivals, the whole range of Jewish life... Here come a pair of old folk. His beard is white and he wears a black hat, while she still has the old-fashioned wig. Slowly they approach toge-ther. My soul quivers and warmth passes through me. Surely they stand for my own parents, and for all our holy and martyred congregation! The fathers with their beards and the mothers in their kerchiefs — they did not caress us and show us their love in the parks or streets of Lanzut. But we knew the warmth of their embrace. We lay in wooden cradles on mattresses of fresh straw and slept the sweet sleep of infancy, while they gently rocked us with their feet... And which of us did not enjoy playing with the hair-pins that were stuck in our mothers' wigs? And if they damaged ...

    xxx SEFER LANZUT through the air. In the distance can be seen the Po-lish girls wearing their coloured kerchiefs as they walk together from the Church. Young fellows strolling through the meadows outside the town itself. Dreaming eyes. In the town itself everything dashes forward as usual. Jews are seeking a living and have plenty to worry about. Who can pay attention to the scent spreading through the air and intoxicating young hearts? Potocki's coach passes, harnessed to six horses. His attendant sitting behind sounds a horn which is as long as the whole coach itself, to inform all and sundry that a great lord is passing by. Everybody ...

    ... a special treat in the afternoons, under the won- derful tuition of I. Schonfeld. I remember the town buzzing with excitement when the Beit Midrash was nearing completion. Rosh Hashana was only a few weeks away The men made a special effort to raise the extra funds which would enable them to finish the building in time to have the "chanukat habayif’ (house-warming) for the new year. The women formed an organization of their own, which the Rabbi called the "Hutten Ferein’’ because its members wore fash- ionable hats. The members of another group, the "Kupkeferein", wore kerchiefs on their heads. My mother, Cipora Gruber, took
