    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 ...

    ... 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 ... "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here ! ’’ We want to confess, a "Shma Israel" for the coming generations. It will be the confession of a tragic generation, one that did not betray its destiny, a generation whose feet weakened by rickets crumpled under the heavy weights of the torments which the times have piled upon their shoulders. And so : we are not interested here in minute ...

    ... the village in the evening with no idea what we were looking for or where to turn. Continuing on the morrow, we reached Dobromyl where my good friend Ephraim Glicksman, may the Lord avenge him, lived. Totally exhausted 1 walked into his house and was surprized to find him there with his family. Ephraim told me that he and his brother-in-law had already been packed and about to go when they thought better of it. After further consideration they reached the conclusion that everything was lost, people were rushing around in circles and it was preferable to stay at home, where one might hide, as the enemy would reach every place in any case. He suggested that I stay with him and wait for developments. We did not have to wait long. After two days the Ger-mans were in Dobromyl. On Thursday ...

    ... found in the wagons. Among the Jewish prisoners were several strongly religious Jews who refused to eat non-kosher food, therefore we gave to them the items suitable to their needs. The following day when the gentile prisoners found out about our "good luck" on the railroad station, they sought out the German under officer in charge and told him that they would perform the work even better than the Jews. The under officer ignored their request with the following answer, "Those who worked yesterday will also work today and the day after for as long as it will be necessary." Several days later new staff arrived for the purpose of taking over the guard post for the camp and in this way "our seven good years" came to an end. The new staff came especially to block number 23 to take ...

    ... help. Also the children of our neighbor Reb. Yankale Reich used to help decorate the "sukah". To the reader of these lines it will be hard to believe that in spite of the fact that my Grandfather was a devoted Hassidic Jew of the Rabbi from Sandtz and a true believer of the Rabbi of Munkacs, he was also a Zionist in his way of thinking. He be-lieved that the Zionist delegates would better serve the Jewish interests in the Polish parliament. He believed that the orthodox Jews on the other hand should be occupied with studying the Torah and spreading Yiddishkeit. And in terms of the "Hecha-lutz" movement (Jewish pioneer movement to Eretz Israel) to work and build up the land, my Grand-father had a very positive attitude and a very warm feeling and understanding for the building of Eretz ...
