    ... practice medicine. There were about forty lawyers thanks to the district court. Some of these lawyers eked out a scant living from their profession. There were also a num-bei of engineers, who completed their course of studies but could not find any work in the field. Most of the druggists couldn't find any work either. A fair portion of them left the town. The same fate met the young teachers. All of them faced a hopeless future. The situation of the artisans and craftsmen failed to improve after the first World War. in many instances their lot became even worse. For the working youth there were no prospects of even finding employ-ment in our town. They organized themselves in various youth movements and waited for "Aliyah"' to Israel.

    ... , reading and studying, his thirst for knowledge unabated. The tragic termination of the Przemysl ghetto marked the end of Yehoshua’s young and promising life. May these few lines serve as a modest tribute to his memory. Yehoshua Schweber was still just a boy and I a grown man when I met him in Brzozow, but it was in Przemysl, where he was staying with his mother and brother Leibish, that bitter fate brought us to-gether. During his stay in the ghetto Yehoshua main-taincd contact with his sister and two brothers in Switzerland, assisted by the mediation of a gentile friend. The contact was kept up to the moment when the situation in the gheto had so deeriorated that all connection with the family was severed. By then the assassins bore down on the miserable ghetto dwellers ...

    ... the liquidation — exterminating the Jewish population of Brzozow. I will avoid giving the exact details which are obviously well-known from the records of other cities and towns that shared the same fate. Brzozow was no exception. For the sake of precise information, it is important to state the following : the gathering point for the victims was out of town at the place ... part of the victims were sent by heavily-loaded trucks to the forest in Brzozow. There a giant grave was already prepared for them and they gave up their holy spirit for the last time, whispering "Sh’ma Israel" with their last breath. The fact also came to our attention that after the war Josef (Joske) Tag the son of Zudek Tag was murdered on the railroad station in Rymanow and carried out by the Polanski brothers ...

    ... , so long as one of us survives, or so long as one of our hooks remains or one of our ideas endures, wc survive and our culture, our heritage, our tradition is transmitted, as if by a lit candle, from one generation to the next. And so, the story of Suwałk is written to acquaint the living with the tragic events of the past. It is written so that »c may take pride in our heritage, courage in our actions and reinforce our faith in our ultimate survival and rebirth. In rcponing the history of Suwałk we do not concern ourselves with the story of individual Jews but arc primarily concerned with the inner life of the Jews of Suwałk as a whole; their culture, their institutions, their religion — all as expressed by an organized articulate self conscious community of Jews who show their sense ...

    ... . This volume is a memorial book dedicated not only to those who lived in the Suwałk vicinity, or those who grew up there, or studied there, or served their military duty there, or migrated from there or even perished there, or the descendants of all the foregoing, but it is a lxiok dedicated to World Jewry, not only of this generation but of all generations past. It is a book written with a very familiar theme and a recurring history. The story is as old as the Bible itself. The settlement of Jews in a stangc land; how they prospered and how they multiplied through the years — remaining nevertheless always strangers in a strange land no matter how long their tenure or how great the contribution to their society. Then, a time of stress and of crisis, and finally of social disorganization ...
