    ... Jew from Erctz Israel, by the name of Israel Abramowitch. came to Boibcrke to collect money for the Jewish settlements in Eretz Israel. Since several other such emissaries had taken money form the towns of Galicia for Israel, the authorities of Galicia wanted to have a check on such collections. They issued a order that each town was to appoint a promin-cnt to supervise the fund. In Boiberkc the man ao chosen was David Lcitcr. In all of Eastern Galicia Jews were permitted to collect only 3000 Florins annually or SI.200. In 1859 the Austrian authorities permitted Jews to live in villages and to buy farm land, and many Jews settled in the villages around the town of Boiberkc. Most of these Jews opened small stores and taverns to supply the peasants with their needs. In 1868 the Jews ...

    ... select few realized that the sufferings of the Jews were completely unmerited and this fact increased their respect for them. Sophia Woychek who described the ,,action" in detail, is conscious of the terrible tragedy and is touched by it. No man capable of human feelings could remain indifferent to their bitter fate. Stanislav Rogovsky may also be counted among those chosen few. His sympathy and warmth towards the unhappy victims find expression in his writing, particularly so in his identification with his protago-nist, Shlomo Adler. He tries to describe the Jewish tragedy as seen through the prism of Shlomo Adler, symbol of the whole Jewish community. His helplessness in the face of his destiny is that of a cripple who, because of his disability, cannot escape his bitter ...

We could not celebrate, for the degenerates, making us a butt for their fury, picked out some victims and shot them to death inside the camp in revenge for their defeat. Some of these wretches were discarded by the overseers as unsatisfactory workers and the rest were chosen by the murderers. Two of my townsmen were among the victims of the "Stalingrad Front" : Shamai Zelig and Itchaleh Goldfinger (grandson of Koppel Tzvik), may God avenge them. From Stalingrad to Plashov it was still a long way to go and we had little to hope for. Some young men stole into Ghetto B, which was relatively easy to reach from our camp.
