  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 483 {y94}
    ... Nazi type — a pretty wrapping under which is concealed a dirty sadistic bastard. Daily, with his own hands, he murdered Jewish workers. This gave him the greatest pleasure. In order to bury the vie-tims quickly, he put together an orchestra of Jews who were forced to play after every murderous act. After the liquidation of the Krakower ghetto, my already dispersed family shrunk and the only sur-vivors were my father’s sister, Nechama, and her three daughters. Her husband, Isaac, was murdered a month before and she and her daughters went over to the camp in Jerozolimska. Her oldest daughter, Esther Weitz and her friend Saltz, both 19 years old, could not endure the ter-rible conditions in the camp and made an attempt to escape. They were caught and immediately sen-tenced to hang ...

    ... were clean. I came to the con-elusion that I could no longer stay in the camp and tried to escape a second time. Sunday, after washing myself I did not return to the camp, but remained in the ghetto. During the twelve days that I was there all the Jewish com-munities in the surrounding towns were liquidated and all became "Juden-rein" (clean from Jews) ac-cording to the Nazi terminology. Meanwhile the ghettos shrunk. People remained only in Krakow, Bochnia, Tarnow, Rzeszow and Przemysl. In the Bochnia ghetto a liquidation action took place on the 28th of August and a small number of capable workers were left over. Those remaining re- they were shoved and pushed into railway cars, and left there for two full days without food or water until the action in Krosno was finished ...

    ... man. My father held me up in his arms so that I could see better. It was a terrible picture. A Chasidic Jew came out of a house; he was pale and terrified, and his face was full of sorrow. He wore no hat, and had nothing on his head but a yarmulke. He had no shoes, only socks, like on Tisha B'Av. In this fashion the Jew walked from his house to the large synagogue. All the way boys threw stones at him, while the adults shrank away from him, in order to avoid proximity. I clearly saw him being struck by a stone in the face, and his face covered with blood. As if the stone had struck someone else entirely, the Jew con-tinued to the synagogue. I don't know what happened in the synagogue, because my father couldn't get inside with me." This event ignited a burning enmity toward Reb David ...

    ... , utensils and so on, in order to complete the imposed quotas. The job of the members of the "Order-Service" was vile and not easy. However, despite the fact that in some cases one policeman or cnother extended help in time of distress, or show'ed a kind attitude, nevertheless, generally, the members of the Order-Service fulfilled their terrible duty obediently. Both the Judenrat and the Order Servicemen never shrank back from helping in snatching Jews to be sent to labour camps, which were in fact death camps. More than once a bitter dispute broke out between members of the Order-Servicc and the rest of the Jewish population. 16
