  • Bobrka Yizkor Book (1964), image 229 {y80}
    ... Mctulla, we rose very early and started out. En route. Julius expressed the desire to visit at the Shrine of Rcb Meyer Ball Hancss. or Rcb Meyer the Miracle worker. Reaching the Shrine, we tried though it was still dark to look into the inner chamber. By pushing the gate the chain from inside loosened so that we were able to push our way in. Julius lit a match and we observed a copper basin filled with oil and some cotton little candles swimming in the oil. We lit all these liny cotton candles, and Julius asked us to empty our pockets of all silver coins and placed same at the edge of the basin. Our chafTucr, the well known Kopcl Rosenberg, contributed the largest amount of the silver coins. We pulled the chain and closed the gates and left the shrine lighted up. We imagined how the sexton ...
  • Busk Yizkor Book (1965), image 332 {y99}
    ... better one. Serious without restless agitation, without the rudeness of conquering races, they take across the planet their tranquil contentment with everything. What is to them the possession of some earth ? Where chance guides them, they plant their long poles, attach the canvas, and their palace is ready. Their little horses feed on the grass, while the gypsy, resplendent in copper buttons, goes from farm to farm in quest of worn out pots and kettles that need the restoring hand of the itinerate tinker. Earth offers plenty for her children, and the troop, enriched by beggary and occasional depredations, appears to enjoy the solid comfort of nomads living on next to nothing. The depth of their eyes, diamond black, their placid features, their solemn gestures, reflect the fatalist ...
  • Busk Yizkor Book (1965), image 333 {y99}
    ... edifice where his forbears had worshiped. The gate was finally locked. While the chattering crowd retired, disappointed that the galions vanished as dream-like as they had appeared, we gradually regained our composure. The neighboring gypsy camp was tempting me and I suggested a visit before our departure. I had retained the vision of a little gypsy of perhaps ten years, who that very morning had for a copper coin frantically followed our car across the holes in the road, while at each of her leaps, like that of a rag doll, the smiling head of a bronze marmot bobbed up, madly tinkling its bells on the shoulders of the swift runner. A gate of the park permitted us to get out into the plain, unnoticed by the eyes of restive Israel, and soon we were in the midst of the tents planted ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 453 {y114}
    ... steady customers, and in order to keep track of their tab, he would bend over the sheet with the appropriate customer's name. Every time he poured a glass of beer, he told his daughter, "Mirl! Bend!" Kozemashin: An enterprising Jew. He was the first to bring a booth with a stove to Chrzanow, and it looked a bit like a car. He roasted potatoes and chestnuts, drew apple wine with seltzer from a copper jug, and most impressive, had a sort of roulette game—a wheel with a wooden stork in the middle. One could win an entire string of figs, or a round coconut. The whole business was called the Kozemashin. Even the owner's children and grandchildren were called Kozemashinen. Ribbentrop: This insulting nickname belonged to a Jew named Ruven, whose nose always dripped. People would say: "Ruven ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 245 {y32}
    ... amount of money and two meals weekly for this purpose. Thus the transient poor was taken care of in an organized fashion. He re-ceived a sum of money plus two meals and a nights lodging if he "stayed over." This averted the spectacle of the migrant poor parading from door to door. It saved him time and effort and he was able to move on and cover more "territory." Part of this levy was designed for the local poor. In addition the income from Moos Chitim and contributions from the "Kehilla" made the life of the local poor, if not comfortable, at least tolerable. For a community the size of Baranow, this was an achievement worthy of note. XII
