  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 420 {y24}
    ... . 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 ...

    ... were to be distributed among the classmates and on the Sabbath neighbors and family were invited to share in the celebration. The child sat in Cheder all day. Contrary to supposition, it was not too strenuous on the child. The studies weren't difficult and the time spent over the Sidur (prayer book—primers were not available in Baranow) was in short intervals. On the other hand the child was always in company of friends—children of his own age, and from early childhood he acquired the social habit of adaption and accommodation. The older the child became, the more strenuous his studies and the more severe the discipline. At the age of nine (9) he would rise about 6 A.M. and learn until about 8, davin, go home for breakfast and was off to school. By two (2) P.M. he was back in Cheder until ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... home to commemo-rate once a year on Memorial Day the holy souls who lost their lives. Another important aim of this Memorial Book is to leave thus a protest-document to the coming genera-tions. It should be a warning to us and to the coming generations, that these barbaric deeds are not forgotten, as is written in the Tora: "Remember what Amalek did unto you". This motto should always stand before our eyes, because it has given us in the past the power to stand up and to overcome all those who intended to de-stroy us. There are still a lot of criminals who walk in the world as free men and do not get the punishment they deserve. They are as impudent as they were before, and they are only waiting for an opportunity to rise again and repeat their wicked deeds. It is in order to keep ...
