    ... collected outside their house for the pleasure of hearing them, especially during the summer when the windows were open. I remember once the oldest brother, Yehi’el, may he rest in peace, Wolf Engel (?) and my brother Kalman, arrived unexpectedly on leave from the army and were faced with the problem of entering the Tschortkower Clois without side-curls. They bought some ,*Peyes" in Przemysl and ... made on the congregation... Reb Koppel Tzwik of blessed memory. I didn’t know his father or where he had come from to the shtetl, but I did know his brother, Reb Israel Tzwik, who was called Uncle Isracltche in our family. He died some 80 years ago and his wife was Aunt Leah, Grandmother Fcigeleh’s sister. Reb Koppel Tzwik had six sons and two daughters. The eldest was Nathan and, in order to ...

    ... awkward and unable to express myself. She received me simply and cordially, sat me down at the table, and said in Polish: 44I invited you here because in a short time I will begin a refresher course for two pupils on the material needed for the high school entrance exams. From what I know of you, this short review will be enough to let you pass the exams. The two pupils already in the course are Busio Engel and Kamush Brumer. I would be very pleased if you would join us, after Passover, and take lessons here at my home". Now, I looked straight at her. Until then, I had listened with my head bent and my eyes downcast.

There were two large flour mills, one run by David Engel and the other the pro- perty of Brane Engel and her son-in-law Haim Katz. Two addition- al flour mills which produced excellent flour in the neighboring villages of Czartoria and Luka Vielka were held by the Karp and Walfish families. The large eggpacking plant was run by Naftali Zeltzer. The brewery, owned by Princess Rey, was leased to Jews. Estates, farms and quarries were similarly held on leases and run by Jews ...
