    ... and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain. The boys devc-loped a method to ease the pain. The victim would run a wet tongue across the painful areas then rub his hand hard against his things to mitigate the sting then march back to his seat in a state of defiance of his teacher. If in view of these abuses the Jewish pupil nevertheless obtained consi-dcrable education it was not due to the efforts of the teacher but in spite of her. The Jewish child "had" to excel if he was to endure in this atmosphere. the cheder ...

    ... before the Nazi occupation. The non-Jewish population, as well as the Soviet government could not forgive the fact that we remained alive. They saw in us an unwanted remnant. They, as well as we. were waiting for the day when we could leave the place forever. Finally that day arrived. According to on agreement between Poland and the Soviet Union, we were allowed to leave the town our fathers and forefathers lived in. We left it with tears in our eyes, to start our lives anew and never to forget all those, who didn't survive. We left behind a big empty synagogue, a desolate peoples center and a large cemetery, filled with massgraves.

    The Germans were making the last preparations necessary for the liquidation of the ghetto. Before our very eyes, they were digging in the cemetery mass-graves for us. They were not hiding their intentions from us, on the contrary, with a smile on their lips, they told us of the approaching Judgment Day. Day after day. they organized our liquidation. Town after town was being finished off. We were counting the few remaining hours. Everyoe was trying to utilize them. Some were trying to repair the hiding-places, others were searching for ways and means to save themselves, even at the last moment. All of sudden, we. received encou-raging news. ...

    ... Jews. Six million times — murder. Each individual and his specific and distinctive death, accompanied by fear and torture. Every human being represents an individual tragedy, a distinct story of his life and the days he lived saturated with tears, filled with rage and chagrin, agonized by hunger, by pain, by constant beatings and by the fear of death. Suddenly we were attacked by an enemy, who was strong, shrewd corrupt, des-picable and utterly cruel. An enemy, who had only one aim. to exterminate all Jews without exception, in the shortest way and by what ever possible means. To attain this goal, the Nazis mobilized learned professors, scientists, psycholo-gists, medical doctor's and simple scoundrels without any conscience or feeling. They had easy access to the most modern techniques ...

    ... , artisans and cart drivers who worked very hard from morning till night, but still needed financial aid. Quite a size-able portion of the Jewish community lived 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 ... 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.
