They were right; their instincts did not deceive them. Some time later a new trouble began, in the guise of the "Hallerchiks," the Polish "liberation army," which the anti-Semitic General Haller had assembled from the dregs of humanity overseas. Their first and most successful combat on arrival in the country was their battle against Jewish beards. They cut and tore beard and skin together from the faces of defenseless Jews. On the other hand, when they met a Jew without a beard, they would beat him mercilessly for "failure to have a beard." These were the predecessors of the Nazis. The finale of the ongoing ...

Thanks to the yearly fairs, the town made swift progress, so much so, that nearby Lemberg complained that Boiberkc competed with her in business. In these early years Boibcrkc was overrun by the Turks, as well as other nations, who burned many houses in the town.

The first world war struck the Jews of Gallicia like a bolt from the blue, leaving them shocked and fearful. True, they believed their King was right in the disagreement with Serbia and, knowing nothing of Bosnia and Herzegovina (two Serbian provinces captured by Austria from the Turks and annexed in 1908, thus causing tension and enmity with Serbia) they believed that if the Kaiser demanded these pro-vinces he certainly had a right to them.
