  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 424 {y94}
    ... prodigious family and only a small remnant managed to escape from the Nazis. The name of the Brakha family has been men-tioned. Special mention must be made of Beileh, daughter of Me’ir and Ethelleh Brakha who, when the assassins drove her to be slaughtered in the forest, jumped from the truck with her baby in her arms and was shot on the spot. May God avenge her. I also wish to mention Ha'im Dick, may God avenge him. Running away from the Nazis, he was shot in prison in Lvov by Hitler’s allies at the time, the Soviets, who accused him of spying for the... Germans. The only survivors of the families men-tioned above are Reb Naftali Feit’s daughter, Haya (Helen) and the young son Moshe. Two sons of Reb Asher Doppelt, Feivel and David, were also saved. The head of this family ...

    ... her other hand a wicker basket holding a "mart" of eggs (a mart = 60). These goods would be bought mainly by "oifkoyferkes", women who made their living by reselling them to the "bala-busies", the housekeepers who were too busy in their stores to go out looking for bargains in the market. A lively bargaining goes on between the Jewish women and the villagers. Each hen and duck is felt all over; their behinds are breathed on to reveal the skin under the feathers and its level of fat. As the buyers look for all the malformations known to man in the prof-fered goods, they offer a price far below that which has been asked : the butter is as pale as lime; the In the case of a respectable farmer, things arc more complicated. He enters with his whip under his arm, as befits a man of property ...

    ... the injunction of "Hazal" : "Meet every man with a greeting of welcome", and no one, including women and children, ever beat him to the greeting. I tried to trick him once, sneaking up behind him care-fully, but as soon as I was about to open my mouth Reb Israel turned around and greeted me with his kindly smile : Good morning, Reb Shimon !...") Did you know a young man by the name of Men-deleh Avraham Ichiss (Mendeleh Dick, may God avenge him) in Breziv ? He was renowned in the shtetl. His father was a butcher and Mendeleh helped him in the shop. At the ripe age of 18 he decided to study Torah and came to my father with whom he

    ... my father’s gentle character. As I said, he was one of the people responsible for the poor. On one occasion this pious occupation proved very expensive for us. A poor Badhan (wedding jester) lived in the cellar of our house. He had ten children, whom he had to feed between one wedding and the next. On one occasion during the war he fetched home a present, a roast duck (just as Schneur tells in his story about Noah Pandrc). It seems that the duck was not .00 fresh, but the children gobbled it all up, and ›nen came down with typhoid. That was a harsh ./inter, and the state of affairs in the cellar apart-rncnt can easily be imagined. My father took the sick children of the Badhan to the Jewish Hospital, which in those days was a poorhouse of the most miserable kind. He carried them ...
