  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 487 {y94}
    ... , I go to the camp commander, knock on his door, and subserviently go into his room. He immediately grabs me, gives me a blow with his fist, throws me out and says "If a Jew wants to talk to me, then only from outside, a distance of three paces from my window". I do as he orders, and stand and beg him to allow me and two helpers, to take the four sick men to the hospital in the Jewish ghetto in Krakow. (The Ghetto in Krakow still existed. It was completely destroyed in March of 1943). He allows me this, on condition that we bear the costs of the necessary transportation. He assigns a guard who escorts me to a farmer who lives nearby. There I

    ... . And so, this chronicle of events is written, not as a replacement for the millions of burned books, but as a pledge to those who have gone before us that their suffering, their ideals and their martyrdom will not be forgotten. It is written as a guide to us, the pre-sent, to be wary with regard to our rights and liberties as free men in a free land — lest we be once more snared by the destiny of history- And, finally, it is written to serve as a reminder to all of us. That no matter what the future may have in store for us, we are certain of one thing; there will always be Jews and therefore there will always be some-one who will remember.

    ... or the descendants of all the foregoing, but it is a lxiok dedicated to World Jewry, not only of this generation but of all generations past. It is a book written with a very familiar theme and a recurring history. The story is as old as the Bible itself. The settlement of Jews in a stangc land; how they prospered and how they multiplied through the years — remaining nevertheless always strangers in a strange land no matter how long their tenure or how great the contribution to their society. Then, a time of stress and of crisis, and finally of social disorganization with its accompanying stages of humiliation, degradation and annihilation. The story varies only in degree. So was it in Kgypt, so was it in Persia, so was it in Spain, so was it in Germany and so it was in Suwałk, Fortunately ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 241 {y32}
    ... Another list was drawn up designating one boy a week to collect the books strewn on the tables and place them in their respective shelves. The money collected was turned opcr to a treasurer, usually a merchant of good repu-tation. The money was withdrawn only when needed to buy new books or mend the old ones. The purchase of new books was a matter that required serious contempla-tion. For there were always more "necessary" books to buy than there was money with which to buy them. The Gabai and the older boys with whom he consulted in such matters, would have to be discriminating in their sc-lection. To the credit of "Kinian Sefarim" it should be noted here that though it was run by mere boys, it was administered efficiently and with integrity. There was never a shadow of scandal associated ...

    ... 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 by umver-sal male suffrage. The periods preceding elections were marked by heated arguments between the factions, which occasionally reached face slapping proportions. Moreover, the elections were not always conducted in the best democratic traditions. Since the law prescribed that the elections were to be certified by the Starosta (head of the county) the party favored by the government {the Rov's Party) usually won. An election which gave the Zionist parly a majority was invalidated, a new Kohol appointed, and new elections ordered by the Starosta. The functions of "Kohol" were many and complex. It was charged with ...
