  • 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 ...

    ... to the prison. The following morning, after a meeting with the Kreishauptman. we rushed to collect golden items as ransom for the lives ofthose Jews, who were put in Jail. 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 ...

    ... on welfare. It is therefore easy to understand the reason for the massive Jewish emigration in the late 19th and early 20th century. Multitudes left in order to find their fortunes in distant America. Of course, this emigration brought relief but it also caused many tragedies. A great number of emigrant husbands left their wives and children without any material aid, and disappeared without leaving a trace. The various wars which took place in the year 1914—1920 had an ill effect on the Jews of our town. Many Jews left Brzezany forever. Most of the Jewish homes were destroyed, the possessions of the Jewish community were robbed and the sources of livelihood were completely ruined. Merchants who returned after the wars reopened their stores•, each one according to his ability. Soldiers ...
  • Bielsko-Biala Yizkor Book (1973), image 156 {y76}
    ... , 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 ...

Um den Zionismus hat er sich ein bleibendes Verdienst durch die Übersetzung des Herzl’sehen "Judenstaates" (mit Anmerkungen) und dessen Zionistischen Schriften ins Hebräische erworben. Da ihm die wissenschaftliche Tätigkeit keinen ausreichen-den Lebensunterhalt bot, wandte er sich dem Lehrfach zu. 1909-1911 finden wir ihn an dem Gymnasium in Brünn und Iglau und 1911 kommt er als Religionsprofessor an das Staatsgymnasium in Beilitz.
