    ... 55 The shmireh matzes are intended for the father of the family and his older sons who are students of the Torah. The women and children eat common matzes, but there are "feminists" who are not content with leaving all the religious duties to the men and struggle for equality in matters of the "next world". These women read "Tzenna u’r’cnna" and know a smattering of the law so that, on winning the fight they, too, join the eaters of "guarded" matzes. Not only is the raw material, the "guarded" wheat, costly, but the baking of these matzes comes much higher than that of the common product. The baking procedure is as follows : Every even-ing before sunset the gentile drawer of water brings water from the well, accompanied by a child who sees to it that no sour element enters ...

    M ץ n Sonic of them held that the side winning at the be-ginning of the war soon consumed all his forces, coming to the conclusion weakened, and without military cadres, and thus loses the war. Others argued that because of her geogra-phical and climatical position Russia was undefeatable. Her winters, autumns and springs were Russia's best defenses, they claimed. As an example they pointed to the history of Napoleon's defeat. Still others claimed that the Germans didn't have enough raw materials to carry on such a long and extended war. The religious optimists and bible-students believed in a miracle of God. Days and nights they ...

    ... pa-tients. At that time the District Officer Dr. Ehaus became ill and I was suggested to him as an expe-rienccd physician. Better die, he answered, "than be cured by a Jew". To our regret he became bet-ter. From time to time he came to the gate of the Ghetto beside which the Hospital stood in order to check whether anybody was smuggling food. He used to raise the women’s skirts and kick them Tode. (We are winning to death.) You may be a good doctor, but you are a bad strategist." Mean-while the Jews were very happy because they believed that Hitler would be too busy to have time to think about them, and meanwhile he would break his neck. The Price Inspector used to come and visit me even before the War against Russia began. I was silent, while he spoke all the time. He told me that ...

    ... for its start to Joseph Hciblum, who was a soccer player from Resovia. He was the team’s first captain. During this time the team prospered so that it could afford to play the best soccer teams in all of Poland. Even Resovia, which was much older than wc were, was not able to engage those teams. Indeed the Polish Soccer League even engaged a champion team from another country for Rzeszow, to play a combination of the teams of Bar Kochba and Resovia. II.

A camp that has migrated from Asia and been suddenly arrested in the mud ; and to complete the vision, in the open plain a village of tents, around which arc slumbering a black crowd of half-naked gypsies.
