    ... . The one in the north served also as a sort of hotel when cir-cumstances imposed detention on an infrequent visitor. All roads led to or emanated from the "Marck." Southward was the heavily cobbled road leading to the railroad depot some seven miles off. Midway to the depot was the Jcw־i$h cemetery. The road to the west was tree lined. On its right was the stately school-house with well kept grounds and picket fence. Somewhat diagonally across was the magnificent church with its tall steeples towering over an extra-vagant wind-swept park. Further down the road was the post office, an un-assuming low-roofed wooden shed, the terminal point for Jewish strollers. Beyond it were concentrated non-Jewish residents and only the rugged and venturesome would risk a leisurely walk in the area ...

    ... möglichste Weise erleichtern, als erschweren sollte". Diese von dem Bürgermeister Ferdinand Czema und den Rathmannen Andreas Krischke, Georg Krauss und Gottfried Machatschky, sowie dem Notar Heinrich Gottfried Frantz gezeichnete Zuschrift ver-fehlte ihres Zweckes nicht und die Einhebung des Schutzgeldes wurde der Schlossherrschaft strengstens untersagt. Trotzdem wagte es dieselbe wenige Jahre danach, dieselbe Willkür aus-zuüben. Als im Februar 1769 die jüdischen Wollhändler in Bielitz eingetroffen waren, liess sie der fürstliche Schloss-hauptmann zu sich kommen, forderte in gebieterischer Weise die Entrichtung des Schutzgeldes und ergriff, als die Eingeschüch-terten es dennoch wagten, "bescheidene Vorstellungen" zu machen, einen Stock, womit er sie ,'von der obersten Treppe bis hinunter ...

    ... , dass sie im Weigerungsfalle hier nicht geduldet, noch ihnen ihr zu treibender Handel gestattet werden würde, und Juden dahero sich verlauten lassen, dass sie lieber weg-bleiben, als dergleichen Zumuthem eingehen würden, so erhellet hieraus deutlich, was für ein ansehnlicher Verlust und Schaden daraus entstehen würde. Da uns nun aber viel daran gelegen, ist dass wir diese, obzwar wenige, jedoch höchst nützliche und be-nothigte polnische Commercium conserviren möchten, so sehen wir uns genötigt, solche Mittel zu ergreifen, wodurch das Commer-cium beibehalten werden könnte, Wir wollen uns zwar hier gar-nicht darauf einlassen, ob und inwiefern das herzogliche Domi-nium befugt ist, von fremden anhero handelnden und sich kurze Zeit aufhaltenden Leuten ein Schutzgeld fordern zu können, son-dern ...

    ... Polish authorities, as they could have postponed the confiscation for a day or two. I lived through the same kind of desecration of the Jewish Sabbath thirty-five years later in Jerusalem, under the British Mandatory government. There, on a Saturday morning, when I emerged from the Jeshurun Synagogue. I noticed a huge military truck. Men in uniform were unloading barbed wire in order to make a fence around the building where the English had the officers club, across the street the Synagogue. I took the liberty of asking the British officer in charge why they were desecrating the Jewish Sabbath, as the worshippers would soon emerge from the services. The answer, as I expected, was that an order was an order. This proved again that wherever the Jews weren't masters of their own the largest ...

    ... around a huge area. One day the Chief of Gestapo, Shumberg, arrived and requested a list of trade workers who were designated to work by him in Z.F.H. Central Employ-ment for Trade Expedition. I was assigned to the group as a weaver. They took me to Bochnia and until they built the weaving factory, I worked erecting a fence around the ghetto. A week later the horrible murder action started in Bochnia. The ghetto was surrounded at night with the SS security police, mili-tary police, and special servants (Sonder-Dienst). Murder groups were not missing. Nobody was let out to work. The main murderers arrived. Chief of the Krakow district, Dr. Scherr, Police Commander "Obersturmbahnfurer, Dr. Scheiner, Vice Commander Groskopf and others. The already mentioned Schum-berg from Bochnia joined ...
