    ... that in the mines. He listened to what I said and tried to work for a few days, but broke down. In the next selection he joined the cavalcade of the doomed. Let me mention other victims from among our townsmen who died in the camp: Yissachar Bayliss, Reuben Schertz, Moshe Schertz and Reuben Eisen, may God avenge them. Each man to his fate. To survive in Auschwitz a man needed his daily quota of miracles, in the manner of a deep-sea diver who needs air to breathe, without which he cannot live a single moment. Those who are no longer with us also recounted the daily, even hourly miracles without which they would have been lost. Then would come the moment when the balloon of miracles would be emptied and that was the end. Others, whom fate continued to supply with some, were saved ...

    ... un-haltbaren Verhältnisse waren die Veranlassung dass im Jahre 1898 die Errichtung einer eigenen Gemeinde- und Rabbinatskanzlei in den Schulgebäude zu diesem Zwecke hergerichteten Räumlichkeiten beschlossen und im Jahre 1899 durchgeführt worden ist. Allein dieser Umstand war nicht von langer Dauer, denn schon nach Ver-änderung der Schule musste die Gemeindekanzlei aus dem Schulge-bäude entfernt werden und in eine Mietswohnung übersiedeln. Die Gemeindevertretung befasste sich schon im Jahre 1895 mit der Frage der Erwerbung eines entsprechenden Grundstückes zur Erbauung eines Gemeindehauses und war zu jener Zeit das ge-genüber der westlichen Front des Tempels gelegene Grundstück als Kaufobjekt in Aussicht genommen. Dieses Projekt gelangte jedoch nicht zur Ausführung. Erst im Jahre ...

The center of the town ran symmetrically. It's central buidding was the "Town-hall". It was a big square building, surrounded by a spacious yard. It consisted of two floors with a tower in the center. In the tower was set a clock, visible from all four sides of the town. The tower also bore the crest of Graff Potocki. a five angled cross. Surrounding the base of the townhall, as well as in the courtyard, there were many stores. Most of them belonged to Jewish store-keepers. The second floor of the townhall served as a highschool. Further west, between the houses stood the Greek ...

    ... the level of destitution of this Jewish family was the main quality of merit which created the pos-sibility of landing in such a neighborhood. David Segal was even more destitute than the poorest of Our shtetl Brzozow was constructed in the style of all other similar towns in Galicia. In the center of town, standing as if just naturally grew there was the city hall with its high tower on top of which was the "town clock". Around the city hall was the market-place and in the middle was a well with a large wheel. The water from the well was pumped by means of a turning wheel.

In the center of the Rink on its rectangular side stood the "Rathois" — the local council, a large municipal building housing rented shops and a few offices. There were also some priviligcd tenants living there, including some Jews. A tall, square tower rose from the roof of the Rathois with a long cable running from its top down into an iron pipe stuck into the ground — a lightn:ng rod to protect the area from the frequents thunder storms in the area, storms which shook the windows and filled the children’s hearts with dread.
