  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 250 {y32}
    BARANOW On the cast was the road leading to the "Wasserlaeh" (a body of stagnant water) and to Tarnobrzeg (County seat). The "Wasserlaeh" also served modest economic and social functions. Its polluted waters furnished a limited supply of fish for the community. In winter it was used by the non-Jews for ice skating and on Rash Hashono by the Jews for Tashlich. The narrow lane in the north, paved with broad flagstones, led to the cluster of Jewish institutional buildings such as the Bes Midrosh (Syna-gogue), the Rabbi's residence, and the Mikveh. The road on the north-western corner pointed to Dolansky's "Castle" (The Hoif). This was an ...

    ... the higher classes, where we came into contact with him in the context of lessons on Jewish history and religion, there sur* faced the second and true face of this man. He was a proud Jew, with a warm Jewish heart, full of Jewish feelings, knowledgeable and involved in the community life of our town. He would help Prof. F. Korn impoverished students to pay the high school fees, either in part, or in full. To our distress, he himself suffered many problems from his ,,friends" at work, and especially from the anti-semitic principal Maro-zovsky. In letters that I received from him in France during the years 1937-39, he repeatedly mourned the anti-semitic agitation being carried on at the gym-nasium, some of which was specifically aimed at him personally. "It is intolerable — I despise ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 406 {y94}
    ... as he died in the Dinnov massacre, in the first days of the Nazi invasion. His literary descriptions are based on reality and are the opposite of exaggerations. No human imagi-nation can devise the horror that actually took place. Here is that part of the story, with some light om-missions, which deals with Shlomo Adler, the crippled hero : ',The cripple Shlomo Adler, who ... In the last days of the community in the Shtetl, after all hopes and illusions had finally been destroyed and all confronted the horrifying reality that closed in like a death trap, leaving them quivering like fish in a net — men like Zissel made a final, desperate effort to escape the hangman’s noose. Some managed to obtain a few days’ respite, even a few weeks, but not Zissel with his disability ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 421 {y94}
    ... a natural death. The fate of his wife, Hennia and their daughter Haitscha is recounted in another chapter. Reb Shmu'el Kintzler’s daughter, Tzilla. married Yehoshua Wolf man, the son of Reb David Wolf man. One son Leybush, settled in Krakow and the other Eliezer lived with his family in Brzozow. Of Eliezer Kintzler’s family two daughters and the son, Moshc, came to Eretz Israel. Reb Itzhak Fass, son of Reb Eliezer Fass, opened a flourishing used-clothes store after the First World War. Reb Itzhak and his wife, Gittele, were renowned for their charity and gave much help to the needy. Reb Itzhak was the "Bikkur Holim" gabbai (visiting the sick) and many times, when the till was empty, would pay the doctors out of his own pocket for treating the sick as well as buying the medicine ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 512 {y94}
    ... treachery, as stupid as they were evil by nature, were actually spread by cynical inciters, but the ignorant masses believed them. The rumors spread quickly and reach-ed us as well, when our synagogues were invaded by Polish "volunteers" carrying guns on their should-ers and searching for "spies". In the thirties, after the death of ,he Polish leader Marshal Pilsudsky, the economic campaign against the Jews took a turn for the worse. Jewish shops were boycotted and guards placed beside them to stop Polish customers from entering. In one case a sale of fish was organized for "national ideological" reasons by a Polish reserve officer who personally, took tht task upon himself as a good deed. Its sole objective was to destroy some impoverished Jews whose whole livelihood de* pended ...
