    ... Hunger, terrible weather and hard work broke him. He died there. Icek, fearless, young and easily influenced, crossed the border several times against my husband’s will, until they caught him and he died in a Russian jail. We do not know the details. God bless them all. I often think of Benio, lying lonely in his grave in the alien soil of the Soviet Union. In the last moments of his life among these beastly criminals. I console myself and believe that our grandmother who loved him so dearly was with him and took with her his oppressed soul. (Translated by Fela Ravett) Well fed, without specific cares, Monek was very happy with his studies. Yes, positively, this short period ...

    ... whither... Having wandered afar they wish to come back, but have lost their way meandering among the houses. Finally they land on the fences, get caught in the shrubs and the weeds, or fall into the puddles in the street. Some of them are gathered up by pious pas-sers*by and, after being kissed are relegated to the "attick" in the synagogues. Others fall into hostile territory, get lost in the alien yards and gardens, only to be trapped. They don’t last long. Cruelly shovelled with iron rakes they are viciously thrust away until they disappear entirely. On the Saturday before the Passover — the "Great Sabbath", it is jokingly said that all the ringworm sufferers send their blisters (Parhes) off to Egypt. Ringworm, commonly called "Pareh", was widespread in those days, before ...

    ... our veins when we heard the tragic news arriving from all sides. In Mielec Jews were being burned, in Trzebinia they were being shot, around us the brutal terror of animal sadism reigned. In this situation the words of the Polish poet Mickiewicz's Dziady came to life: "Darkness and silence everywhere; What will be?, what wttl be?." The concept of a body of Jewish representatives was alien to the Jewish masses. Thus it was with a certain astonishment that the Jews heard the news that a Jewish committee would be established to represent Jewish concerns in dealings with the German authorities. Jews who were influenced by the tragic news about the barbaric oppression of the Jews in Germany couldn't comprehend the fact that an institution had been called into being to serve the interests ...
