They managed from time to time to send money to their families whom they had left in Boibcrkc. Eventually they During the latter part of the 19th century many Jews of eastern Galicia, including many from our township of Boibcrkc, sought to better their economic condition by emigrating. Most of them went to the United States, where they knew that able-bodied men willing to work could earn a fairly good living. There was a valid reason for their eagerness to leave Boiberke.

I worked in a restaurant and ate well. There were about 20 of my townsmen in the ghetto and we kept in touch with one another. The rest of my townsmen remained in the camp, believing that as laborers their chances were better. The turn of the Krakow Ghetto came in March 1943. Two days before the "action" the Germans surround* ed both ghettos. Ghetto A was transferred to the Yerozolimska Camp, as were the inhabitants of Pla-shov Prokochim. Ghetto B was closed down.
