    ... Der Werdegang des "Haschachar" war kein leichter. Er musste nicht nur eine Generation überdauern, die im ehrlichen Glauben an den Fortschritt der Menschheit, das eigene Los und das ihrer Brüder, der damals noch vorherrschenden, allerdings schon seich-ten Strömung des Liberalismus anvertrauten, vielmehr musste jeder einzelne Jude, dessen Gedankenwelt der Zionismus aufge-wühlt hatte,mit sich selbst zunächst fertig werden.

Wir jungen Juden von damals ahnten intuitiv, dass ...

    ... of paper goods, typesetters and printers. There were two optometrists among the Jews. One of them had come there from United States in about 1898. Around the year 1890, there were representatives of Austrian chain stores: the Moedlingcr Shoe Factory, managed by a certain J. Froehlich; a men’s clothing store, Heilman Cohn and Sons from Vienna, managed by a Mr. Z. Fertig. Until then all clothes and footwear were made to measure by local crafts-men. Contrary to the beliefs of many Christians, Jews engaged in all branches of productive, manual and menial labor. They were artisans, craftsmen, carriers of loads (porters), and transporters of par-cels ("frakhters") to distant cities. These services reduced the time and the cost of commercial trans-port.

Together with Nussbaum and Teichler, he was sent to Auschwitz by the Chrzanow police. A short time later came the news that all three had died of heart failure. After Cuker's arrest, the books were checked by the Gestapo men Kranuy and Freitag.

Although the audit revealed no irregularities, Kranuy is said to have explained to Merin that according to the German authorities, Cuker had displayed too much nerve and independence. Teichler was freed ...
