    ... which to buy them. The Gabai and the older boys with whom he consulted in such matters, would have to be discriminating in their sc-lection. To the credit of "Kinian Sefarim" it should be noted here that though it was run by mere boys, it was administered efficiently and with integrity. There was never a shadow of scandal associated with the administration of this institution. In the final analysis, Baranow, in the last two decades before its destrue-tion, represented a civilization in transition. To be sure, Baranow was not alone in its groping for new concepts and orientations. Almost each town in western Galicia, and for that matter, in the entire country, was faced with similar situations. But Baranow was different, unique. It was like the other towns of similar size, yet was an entity ...

    ... their income in the various stores or open stands which cluttered the "Marek" and thus secured the necessary items for their households. The social status of the Jew in the community usually followed his finan-cial position. But this was not absolute—general erudition, knowledge of the Talmud or "good"' children, would contribute to the elevation of one's status. The social line, in general was not too finely drawn. Laws governing the economy grew steadily more oppressive. No Jews was to get license to sell tobacco. The Jewish saloon keepers found difficulty in having their licenses renewed notwithstanding the intervention of the Jewish members of the Sejm (parliament). In addition, the non-Jewish element made serious attempts to establish businesses. The famous slogan "Swoj do swego'' ...

The Germans constructed high wirefence around the house : so thai no one could come in. or leave without the guards order. Everyone who had obtained a card, had to come and reside there not later, than the end of May. At dawn, on Saturday, June 12. tht final "action" began. 3 days ahead of our ex-pectations. On that day the Ges'.apo finished off the ghetto, as well as the people in the barracks. Even this time he Germans succeeded in deceiving those, who believed them.

    ... reason, which eventually caused the Germans to postpone the last "action" for a number of months. In March, 12 Jewish women received permission from the Gestapo to go and purchase whatever they needed in the market Novi-Rinek. There the German gendarmes were waiting for them. They arrested the women and brought them straight to the cemetery, where they shot and killed them. Prior to the final liquidation, of the ghetto, there was one more "action", which lasted 3 days. It began several days before Passover. Unlike the previous "ac-tions", this one was performed by local forces. It was done slowly, quietly and carefully. In a matter of 3 days they succeeded in gathering 300 people, .men. women and children into the yard of the prison. There. Herman of the Gestapo made a selection. Some were ...

Thus, the Jews began to look for ways and means to save themselves. There were some, who attempted to crose the Hungarian border. Others tried to live as gentiles ...
