  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 420 {y94}
    155 A LETTER I loved my father for his benevolence and opti- mistic attitude. He would say : "One has to show God how one should live. Demand a turkey and he will supply you with one; but if you only ask for a few potatoes — that’s what you’ll get! He had such innumerable come-backs for his wife and daughters. He was a kind-hearted man who knew all the offi-c'als and magistrates in the shtetl. When a Jew had a problem he would bring it to Reb Israel Freund to see if he could help. Mother and the five daughters were very proud of him. Our house was a haven of love and tranquility. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 495 {y94}
    ... he once said to me in Warsaw : "I’ve already tried lecturing in Yiddish and I think I've got the language". And just two months ago in Haifa heard him say with the same self-depreciation : "I believe that in a few weeks more I’ll be able to lec-ture in Hebrew". He could have made the act of joining the work-ers’ movement in the diaspora easier for himself. After all, the day-to-day activity of the movement did not demand a too profound and painful ideolo-gical analysis, and the exigent need for pivotal per-sonalities could have been a short and easy way to achieve leader status. The way he chose, how-ever, was that of profound, unremitting study, never compromising the principal tenets of the movement. He never neglected a single problem that needed investigation nor did he accept ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 559 {y94}
    ... days, during which we subsisted on bread and water. I well remember the years I spent at the Girls’ Public School. During the "Religion" lessons, given to the Christians by a priest, the Jewish girls had to wait outside in the corridor. It seems that this priest had the sinister idea of converting me, otherwise why would he demand that I, out of all the Jewish pupils there, remain in class during his lesson ? This also contributed to my decision to leave Poland at the earliest possible opportunity. It was no easy task to convince my parents that I had to leave home at an early age and go to Eretz Yisrael where we had no relatives at all.
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 415 {y114}
    ... from house to house in-specting the pots to make sure they contained nothing forbidden. Our hearts nearly failed when we heard the tramp of police boots. Many of our women and children actually did succumb to heart attacks caused by terror, a long time before they were suffocated and burned in Auschwitz. Lindner never stopped arranging work details during that period. He continued to demand (or better, to grab) new victims for the German labor camps. After a time only girls were taken, because the young men of Chrzanow didn't allow themselves to be taken so easily. The frequent roundups by the German police often failed to bring the desired results, because the intended victims often reached their hiding places. The inventiveness of these people, who wanted to survive to take vengeance ...
