  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 252 {y32}
    B A R A N O W By Jacob D. Brand history The origin and early development of Baranow is difficult to trace. There is no documentary evidence available. In the checkered history of Poland, Baranow occupied no special position, notwithstanding its location on the Vistula (Wisla). The origin of the Jewish settlement is likewise unknown. It must be assumed that during the reign of Casimir the Great, in the 14th century, when Jews found refuge in Poland from persecution in Western Europe, they fanned out in its fertile plains and settled along the shores of the Vistula. It is claimed that the cemetery contained monuments (uprooted by the Nazis ...

We collected 5 kilos of gold articles and brought It to the Kreishauptmann. He took the gold and put It in his pocket, but didn't release the people. 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 ...

    ... , denn der junge Jurist der begonnen hatte sich eine Existenz aufzubauen und dessen Klientel die Fabrikanten waren - unter-stutezt gerade die Feinde seiner Brotgeber - die Arbeiterschaft! Die politische Gesinnung Dr. Traubners wurzelte tief im sozialistischen Ideengut. Sie basierte auf dem Wissen um die historische Entwicklung der Wirtschaft und die entscheidende Stellung der Arbeiterschaft, die sie durch den Klassenkampf er-ringen soll. Dr. Traubner kam im engen Kontakt mit den jüdi-sehen Arbeitermassen in Galizien und Polen. Die bedrängte Lage dieser Menschen führte ihn zurück zur zionistischen Tätigkeit im Rahmen von Poalei-Zion. Mit vollem persönlichen Einsatz und Hingabe wirkte er mit am Aufbauwerke des jüdischen Staates. Noch vor Einzug der Nazis in Bielitz, übersiedelte ...

    ... Der Turnbet-rieb wickelte sich damals in zwei Herrenriegen und einer Damenriege ab. Der Höhepunkt der Turnsaison war das Chanukka-Fest, wo gewöhnlich als Makkabäer-Feier ein Schauturnen im Saale sowohl von der Herrenriege als auch von der Damenriege Veranstaltet wurde, an welchem sich dann der "Makkabi-Turnver-einsball" anschloss, besonders beliebt bei der ganzen jüdischen Bevölkerung von nah und fern. Durch Ausflüge an Sonn- und Feiertagen in die herrliche Umgebung von Bielitz wurde auch das kameradschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Niveau erweitert und gepflegt.- Ein ganz besonderes Ereignis gab es im Juli 1914 für den jüdischen Turnsport und zwar der Kreisturntag in Brünn, an welchem alle jüdischen Turn- und Sportvereine der österrei-chisch-ungarischen Monarchie teilnahmen.
