    ... 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 ...

    ... from which they had abstained all through the Holiday. It must be noted that in spite of all the restric* tions detailed above, perhaps because of them, the Pesach was the most beautiful and impressive of all the festivals, with every prohibition adding to its special charm and unique character. and major and minor reservations as he saw fit, all in accordance with the Haggadah rule : the more the better. As every individual had his own system of pro-hibitions no less jealously guarded than the laws which were generally binding, it became common practice that during the Pesach no one would go to eat at friends’ houses, and dishes were not borrowed either from neighbours or relatives. This phenomenon was called in Yiddish: "Pesach mischt men sich nicht!" (You don’t get involved ...

    ... Listening to their stories which were naturally full of exaggerations, about the lost happiness of bygone days, it was hard to decide whether that was how they had really felt at the time or, faced with the present difficulties, they were creat-ing illusions about an imaginery past they had pre-sumably enjoyed. However, as the Jews’ demands were so modest following the adage : "Better a single slice of bread in tranquility" or "a tricken" shtikel broit’ enjoyed in peace, it may be assumed that they were contented with a rusk dipped in "gritz" (a lentil soup) or "pamale" (plum soup) and that their nostalgia for the peaceful Austrian era was sincere. It is only natural that the naive and simple Jew who knew little of politics, of the political processes and changes which had taken ...

    ... in their search for "tachless". The more tolerant mem-bers of the congregation treated them with under-standing and a measure of respect, well aware of the importance of their maintaining some sort of ties with the Clois, and not getting into evil ways. The more radical members, as was their wont, insulted them, claiming that by their very presence they were cor-rupting the better youths. This was another aspect of the eternal argument between Beit Hillel and Beit Shamai, the two schools of thought, and it goes on to this very day. Clinging to the wall of the Sadigurer Clois there stood the old Rabbi’s wooden house, containing the Rabbi’s living quarters and the "bezn-shtub" — the Court Room which served the Rabbi both as a study and as a guest room. Here the Balei-batim gathered ...
