  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 247 {y32}
    ... issuing fines for violations were not infrequent. Often it became the task of the Jewish Councilman to intervene on behalf of the victim to cither cancel or reduce the fine. The meetings at the City Council were often stormy, as some of the Jewish members would expose ordinances to be anti-Semitic in intent and execution. The position of the Jewish Councilman was an unenviable one. He fought the subtle and overt anti-Semites in the City Council and defended Jewish rights with vigor and dignity. KOHOL The original meaning of the term Kohol—community—went through a series of changes. It was finally applied to mean organized leadership of the Jewish community. In Baranow, "Kohol" consisted of a number of members whose presiding officer was the Rosh Hakohol. This body was elected periodically ...

    ... the Bes Midrosh (Synagogue) was the center of social and political activity. The Bes Midrosh also had an imposing array of religious books. The morn-ing and evening hours found the boys poring over them absorbently. During the Sabbath and holidays the long tables were occupied by the baale batim (citizenry) leisurely learning from the various tomes. There was no overt deviation from the accepted norms of traditional Judaism. Yiddish was the spoken language. With few exceptions, the Jews knew Polish—though few spoke it sufficiendy well to pass for native Poles—but used it only in their business intercourse with the non-Jewish population. vii [

    ... one could pay. If not, one had to meekly borrow somewhere a wooden bucket or a pitcher and go to the well for water. For "Pesach," they used to cover the keg with a white linen cover, so as to render the water "kosher for Pesach." Several times a year they used to hammer a nail into the keg ot water as some kind of amulet. To this day 1 do not know what this was supposed to do, what was its purpose. It was supposed to avert some kind of evil. Every family used to whitewash its dwelling for them-selves, and this was done only at Passover time, when the "chometz" was cast out of the house.11 With the rich this was half way tolerable. They had two rooms. With the poor, "nebich," this was a heavy burden, since they almost without exception lived as families of four and six and even eight ...

    HUSIATIN MEMORIAL BOOK 98 patch to Siberia—we rode by horse and buggy, requisitioned by the regime—in every town changed for others, and accompanied by soldiers on horseback. In order to avert onset of an epidemic disease, a stern decree was issued, requiring us to lodge only in the woods, or at water’s edge. It was necessary for the local police to be bribed by the Re-lief Committees, so that they be permitted to visit us. Frequently, they were chased off by whip-bearing overseers. For fourteen days, we were escorted under guard; for four-teen nights, we lodged at the waterbanks, or in the woods. Through the entire trip, ...

    ... fate which befell our less fortunate brethren in other parts of Russia. When the Jews from the sur-rounding towns warned us of an impending attack, the police com-mander immediately sent police to warn the leaders of the groups not to dare any attacks in our town. The fact that our townsmen were well organized and sent a unified delegation to the police offi-cer must have also helped to avert the expected attack. Thus, at a slow measured pace, the day-to-day life of our town followed its course. During the week, everyone was preoccupied with matters of making a living. However, when Friday afternoon would arrive, and until Saturday evening, the very buildings would assume a different visage. All transportation would cease. Even the non-Jewish helpers, as well as the customs officials ...
