    ... many casualties, besides those, who were murdered by the Nazis. Hundreds died from hunger and epidemics. The spring of 1942. that followed, brought no relief for us. Day after day there came new commands, and with them new and fresh troubles. The Kreishauptmann was displeased with the Judenrat and reorganized it. He added another man Bercio Feld. The Kreishaupt-mann saw in him the man who will carry out his orders to his fullest satisfaction. He also reduced the number of the Judenrat from 24 to 12, so that it could be easier for him to deal with the Council. Feld's first activity was to reorganize the Jewish militia. He brought into it many of his friends whom he trusted, and appointed Bettinger as its commander. The Nazi order in those days was to concentrate in Brzezany these Jews ...

    ... affected the health of the Jewish population and epidemics began to spread. One day I was called to the Judenrat. When I came there, I found the Gestapo waiting for me. for I was responsiblfe for reporting to them on the health condition of the Jewish population. Right there and then, ihey gave me an order to inform them withou delay on any case of a contagious disease. Of course I promised to do so. I promised, but I didn't carry It out. Yet, it didn't prevent the Gestapo from visiting our town each week and shoot-ing a number of persons, justifying their action by claiming that they were clearing the town from typhoid. Actions such as these continued. Eight days before Hanukkah the Kreishauptmann called the Judenrat represen-tatives to his office and told them in anger, that he won stand ...

    ... He could not stand so many Jews in our town. He. therefore, decided to transport at least, one hundred of them weekly to nearby towns. The feeble, the old and the sick had to go first. Only those, who were able to work and be useful, were be left in town. The responsibility to carry out this scheme was placed on the Judenrat. The Judenrat also had to report to the German authorities the number of Jews deported to other towns each time. There was no alternative, the Judenrat had to comply with the order. To carry out this task, it was necessary to engage a force of men who would be subject to the authority of the Judenrat. An order was given by the German administration and the Judenrat organized a Jewish militia the "Ordnungsdienst". In the time this militia became very helpful ...

Wie eingangs erwähnt, bin ich als erster Zögling im Jahre 1912 zum Herrenturnen zugelassen worden, nachdem man meine turntechnischen Qualitäten wie auch Sporttalent erkannt hatte. Dies geschah jedoch ganz inoffiziell, denn laut den bestehenden Schulvorschriften war es strengstens verboten, dass Schüler Mit-glied eines Vereines sein durften. Die Professoren der Mittel-schule, Werner und Fink, die selbst aktive Turner waren, mus-sten daher beide Augen zudrücken (und sie taten es ...
