    ... untrue was severely punished. Fight between Jewish and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain. The boys devc-loped a method to ease the pain. The victim would run a wet tongue across the painful areas then rub his hand hard against his things to mitigate the sting then march back to his seat in a state of defiance of his teacher. If in view of these abuses the Jewish pupil nevertheless obtained consi-dcrable education it was not due to the efforts of the teacher but in spite of her. The Jewish child "had" to excel ...

With the exception of one tobacco store, a saloon, a grocery store, and a candy booth, all stores were owned by Jews. Three or four tailors, three bakers, one roofer and one bal agolo (drayman) constituted the Jewish proletariat, though they would have strenuously ...

Everyone had his own com-ments. Finally, we learned the tragic truth about the final solution. The Nazis were transporting the Jews in special extermination-camps. A place, or district where Jewish inhabitants had been exterminated became designated as free and clear of Jews — "Yudenrein". Thus, the Jews began to look for ways and means to save themselves.
