    ... Europe and that it was as a result of their influence and aid that the orientation of the Jews in the New World changed from a German and Scphardic influence to one of East European domination. The sons of Suwałk helped start a Jewish press in New York, aided in the formation of the Hias, underwrote and founded New York's Beth El Hospital and Su-walker Schules and were responsible for countless other civic and community projects such as the establishmerit of a Suwałk Relief Committe of New York, now in existence for more than 40 years, which continues to be dedicated to the proposition of aiding Suwałk Jews caught in the whirl of history. 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 ...

    ... the Nazi horde. It, no doubt, owes this prominence to its strategic location in the triangular arc! formed by the borders of Poland, Prussia and the Baltic States. The course of events affecting Suwałk Jewry, the stages of humiliation and annihilation at the hands of both the German Nazis and the violently Anti-Semitic Polish, Latvian and Lithuanian peasants, was to be paralleled in the history of the treatment given and the attitudes shown to other Jewish communities unfortunate enough to find themselves under the dreadful yoke of Nazi do-mi nation. This volume is a memorial book dedicated not only to those who lived in the Suwałk vicinity, or those who grew up there, or studied there, or served their military duty there, or migrated from there or even perished there, or the descendants ...

    ... unto itself and had a soul all its own. Basically, it was not a small town; it was a big city in miniature, with its socio-cultural and economic problems. But its deep interests were in large issues. Such topics as Orthodoxy and Radicalism, Zionism and Assimilation, cultural progress and stagnation, loomed important in the community. Their severity was not diminished by the fact that they did not concern Baranow either directly or remotely. Its own pressing day to day problems were handled in a manner and degree of importance and immediacy but the dis-cussions of the larger, abstract issue were the spice of life in Baranow, and were treated with the seriousness and heated dignity befitting them. Nazi brutality ended a civilization of a unique quality—Jewish life in the small-big town with ...

    ... occasion for celebration. Candies and cookies 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 ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 254 {y32}
    ... until that tragic day when every thing was angulfcd in the calamity that overwhelmed European Jewry. We, a handful, have survived the Catastrophe and by a supreme effort we have begun to weave the strands that bind us to our ravished community. The years arc passing and a new generation has grown to maturity. This new generation, children and grandchildren of the men and women of Barniv in Israel and other countries, know very little about the community from which their parents hail, while the number of townsmen and townswomen of Barniv is steadily growing smaller. It is for these reasons that we regard the establishment of this memorial to the martyrs who died in the crematoria of Belzec as a sacred duty. The resources at our disposal are too small to perpetuate their name in some more ...
