    ... of the sick to Jewish physicians: Dr. Mictck (Marvin) Margulies and Dr. Leo Kurtz. These two men saved as many prisoners as possible. But Dr. Kurtz suc- sumbed to the epidemic himself and died in the camp. WOMEN AND CHILDREN First women were taken into the camp in June 1942, when small Jewish communities near Cracow had been wiped out. They did their hard work in the kitchen, cooking for the prisoners. They had also to serve as cleaning women in the SS and Camp-guard barracks. They were very decent and tried to help the starving prisoners, whenever pos- sible. Officially no children were permitted in the Julags. Somehow, however, their mothers succeeded in hiding them. There were about 25 children, who had to be kept out of Mueller ...

    ... They then moved on to the next town where they would repeat the process. On the average, around 70 such transient economic outcasts passed through Baranow weekly. A voluntary committee was organized to handle this phase of activity. A tax was levied on the Jewish community and each family was obligated to pay a certain 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 ...

We also lost at once most of our hiding places and the advantage of escaping from the town in time of danger. The next "action" was not late in coming. By the month of January 1943. 3 actions, each one more cruel than the other, had taken place. We were only a small group of people left in the ghetto, a mere remnant of the Jews of our town. At the be-ginning of February, the Judenrat received an order from the Gestapo to bring back to town all these Jews, who received special permission to live outside the ghetto. On the 15th February 1943 the validity of these special permits expired. This served as a sign, that ...

Instead, they were loaded on trucks and transported to an unknown destination. They disappeared, without leaving any trace. The peasants in the neighbourhood told later that these people were murdered. The Germans claimed, that they were taken to a labor camp. We lived witn the hope of seeing them alive again. The German machine to finish off the Jews, worked without a halt. A new order came from the Kreishauptmann 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 ...
