    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. ...

    ... 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 ...
