    ... of the Bcrziancr District, which showed that there were 11.766 Jews. Of these Jews 1.780 were engaged in small business and trades. 486 among them in Boiberke. In 1804 a tourist by the name of Mr. Rohrcr visited Boiberke and he reported that Boiberke impressed him as a real Jewish town. He stated that with the exception of a few rich individuals, all the Jews of Boiberke were quite poor. While the tourist was in the hotel, the hotel keeper told him that he himself exported to Danzig 2.000 pieces of material for making sacks (manufactured in Boiberke), and that he made a profit of 30 kreitzer (12 cents) on each piece of material.
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 464 {y94}
    ... Poland came to a speedy end. England and France gave in much more quickly than had been feared; Hitler was appeased by the "Munich Agree-ment" and Czechoslovakia was abandoned. Not con-tent with Sudetenland, the Nazis hardly waited to take the whole of Czechoslovakia. Then they directed a massive attack against their next victim — their erstwhile ally — Poland. The demand was for Danzig and the "Corridor" (the Polish one to the sea). The gigantic Nazi propaganda machine was put into high gear. The press and radio unleashed a campaign of un-restrained encitement against Poland, using the now familiar methods. The threats increased daily in their aggression. The bewildered Polish government lost control. At first they tried to maintain a low profile, ignoring provocations in order to give ...

    ... the beginning of a tremendous wave of mutilation and "Bacchanalia" (orgy) against the Jewish nation with the racial for-mula typical of Hitler. After the German armed forces marched into Austria and with the accompanying occupation of Czecoslovakia, Hitler changed his attitude and tune concerning Poland and stepped forward demanding the immediate return of the "Free City of Danzig" situated in the passage of the Baltic Sea, as well as some western and southern regions of Poland assigned to it at the "Versailles Treaty" at the end of World War I. Poland was not ready to return these territories to Germany, particularly since Poland held several political treaties with the French and English govern-ments and counted on their help and support in case of a German assault. At the last ...

    ... of course, had to take on the burden of supporting these unfortunates. Unrest grew from day to day. The non-Jewish popula-tion, however, were of a different opinion. The Poles were very hopeful. They blindly believed in the military potential-ity of the Polish army and claimed that Hitler would have a hard nut to crack if he risked war. They believed that in the worst case the war would end with the loss of Danzig and the Corridor. In their naivete they continued to believe that the Polish cavalry had a real role in the era of tanks and planes. The Polish government had also concluded a pact with Eng-land and they believed that England would come to their aid even before the German machine could begin to move. The Ukrainians were still of another opinion. They be-lieved that the war would ...
