  • Biecz Yizkor Book (1959), image 320 {y69}
    ... against such elements that we are ordered "not to for-get". As this is a memorial document which is meant for the coming generations, it should include the past history, because the life of the community was full of national and cultural events; Beicz was not a community of gyp-sies or of degenerated people, its men were cultured, they held high human and national ideals and aimed for a better and peaceful world. We should therefore devote out time to express all we know about the past, and all those who can help to fulfill this holy task will be welcome and blessed. We repeat to our brethren in America that they are welcome to write in any language they please; it is the contents that matters, the perpetuation of a destroyed community, and this should be an ever-lasting ...

    ... married to a girl from Rohatin. another small town in Galicia. They left for the United Stales right after the wedding, which indicates that Itchc Bromberg was the first Boiberker who emigrated to America. In 1890. another of Emil Bromberg's uncles. Ychudah Halwcil or Yide Koklcr came to New York. After a sojourn of several years, he returned to Boibcrkc. but again he couldn't better his economic condition and when he learned that the Brazilian Government had sent a commission to Galicia to lure working people to Brazil, he joined the group and went there. However, he couldn't stand the hot climate of the country and returned again to Boibcrkc. This time he tried hard to remain there, but again he couldn't better his economic condition.

  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 438 {y94}
    137 In the early morning we rented a taxi and left for Oswiecim (Auschwitz), the well-known extermina-tion camp for the systematic slaughter of European Jewry. There we spent the whole day. It is very difficult to describe the mood and state of mind, while visiting such a German ,,Culture Insti-tution". Better leave it to the reader’s imagination... The first deplorable scene was the ,,gate" through which the trains with their unfortunate Jewish victims, men, women and children arrived. At the gate was the shocking inscription ,,Arbeit macht frei" (,,Work creates freedom"). The cynicism of these words is beyond belief. A ...

    ... , the sadism and horrors of the camp. They were forced to bear it all, even the sufferings of those more pri-vileged until, at the end of their tether, they stumbled and fell, to be kicked away like worms by the shining boots of a Kapo. They will not recount all this. Why depress every-body and invoke the ghosts of nightmares, especially as their own consciences were not too clean...? Better speak of the solitary few they knew who ate their fill. In this sea of torment and carnage they prefer to see the drops of oil floating upwards, the remnants of a sunken ship. Yes, as we bite our own flesh with I have read somewhere about a group of people who set out for the North Pole, only to have their ship stuck in a sea of ice-bergs. Their cries of S.O.S., went unheard, their ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 451 {y94}
    ... details, yet, in spite of our inability to imagine the horrible events, we were well aware of the terrible tragedy that had overtaken our families. No words can describe the atmosphere at the camp that evening. We had all been orphaned, our loved ones killed, our homes destroyed. Here we were, in the hands of merciless killers who were preparing a similar end for us. Would it not be better to put an end to such a hopeless, meaningless existence ? Like a herd encircled by slavering beasts of prey we huddled together, without a word of comfort for each other. Later on we lay down on the boards for a night that had no end. Each one of us tried to rationalize the tragedy, but it was useless to do so. From every corner rose the sound of weeping and in the camp with the terrible ...
