  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 250 {y32}
    BARANOW On the cast was the road leading to the "Wasserlaeh" (a body of stagnant water) and to Tarnobrzeg (County seat). The "Wasserlaeh" also served modest economic and social functions. Its polluted waters furnished a limited supply of fish for the community. In winter it was used by the non-Jews for ice skating and on Rash Hashono by the Jews for Tashlich. The narrow lane in the north, paved with broad flagstones, led to the cluster of Jewish institutional buildings such as the Bes Midrosh (Syna-gogue), the Rabbi's residence, and the Mikveh. The road on the north-western corner pointed to Dolansky's "Castle" (The Hoif). This was an ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 406 {y94}
    ... make much money where people used to buy even a single cigarette. Still, when all went well the owners managed to eke out their "hayuna", a bare living. In the last days of the community in the Shtetl, after all hopes and illusions had finally been destroyed and all confronted the horrifying reality that closed in like a death trap, leaving them quivering like fish in a net — men like Zissel made a final, desperate effort to escape the hangman’s noose. Some managed to obtain a few days’ respite, even a few weeks, but not Zissel with his disability. No one knows what actually took place during the last moments of those murdered and slain and this applies to Zissel too. Only in the phantasmagoria of sleepless nights or in our nightmares do the endless possibilities appear ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 512 {y94}
    ... treachery, as stupid as they were evil by nature, were actually spread by cynical inciters, but the ignorant masses believed them. The rumors spread quickly and reach-ed us as well, when our synagogues were invaded by Polish "volunteers" carrying guns on their should-ers and searching for "spies". In the thirties, after the death of ,he Polish leader Marshal Pilsudsky, the economic campaign against the Jews took a turn for the worse. Jewish shops were boycotted and guards placed beside them to stop Polish customers from entering. In one case a sale of fish was organized for "national ideological" reasons by a Polish reserve officer who personally, took tht task upon himself as a good deed. Its sole objective was to destroy some impoverished Jews whose whole livelihood de* pended ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 526 {y94}
    ... a "minyan" (a group of ten) so as to appear before their Maker in a well-ordered manner. The prayers are longer than usual, intoned with deep feeling and interspersed with never-ending sighs whose The months of Elul herald the coming of the "Yammim Nora'im" (Days of Awe) which follow it. It is a well-known fact that even the fish in the water quake with fear of the Day of Judgment about to come; how much more so, then, the shtetl Jews who realize more than the fish do that they are facing a trial which will determine their fate. For all their preoccupation with mundane matters they are con-stantly aware of the approaching verdict and much time is spent on praying and psalm singing to lighten the sentence. With the "climatic" changes of the last few years there is far less "fear ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 530 {y94}
    ... ladders placed at its sides to hold the fodder and the vegetables brought in from the fields, as well as firewood and construction beams brought to the village. On market day the side-lad-ders are reinforced by "polkoshiks’ (halves of woven reed baskets, to prevent the goods from falling out). One goes to the "Targovitza" with the heavy produce, such as piglets tied in a sack, squirming like fish in the net, the sound of their screams lost in the general noise of the market. There may also be a fattened pig or a calf, eagerly awaited by the butchers. An old cow whose time has come for slaughter or a young pony — these are tied to the back of the cart. The innocent horse is probably glad that they are not part of his burden but he will very quickly be proved wrong in his calculation ...
