    ... into Purim players. They performed the Biblical play "Joseph and His Brethren." He took the role of Joseph and his younger brother took the role of Benjamin. On Purim eve they went from house to house of our town and performed to the delight of old and young. We youngsters would follow them for hours on end. A year later, in 1918, while the cannons of war were still belching flame, our town folks in New York, members of the Progressive Boibcr-ker Young Men's and members of the Boibcrkcr Sick and Benevolent Society, as well as two or three members of the Boibcrkcr Women’s Aid Society, and several none affiliated individuals, gathered to organize the Boibcrkcr Relief Committee in New York. Some months after the armistice, one of our Boiberker, my good friend Julius Engelbcrg, went ...

    ... derived from the fact that he was the source of the vodka. He calms them down, smooths the ruffled feathers and tries to restore them tb a state of sanity. He praises them both to the skies, upbraids them, reminds htem of their rcspec-table status and their responsibilities to their families. In fact, he does everything possible to quench the fire before it breaks out in a mighty flame. Choosing the one who still evinces some signs of reason, he tries a number of tricks to get him out-side, but does so in such a manner as will not impugn his honor or make him appear the loser trying to get away from the fight. Once they have been separated and one of them has been led respectfully, like a bridegroom to the altar, to the door, the other, con-sidering himself the winner, mouths ...
  • Husiatyn Yizkor Book (1968), image 228 {y198}
    ... comes to mind: Prior to our departure to America, we visited our aunt, in the mentioned village. She kept twitching with the mouth, ceaselessly. Asked the reason therefor, she reminded me that, during our stay in her village, a huge flame—lighting up the sky—ap-peared in the distance. Subsequently, it turned out that the entire village had been set ablaze by Czarist soldiers, during their Gali-cian invasion. So intense was the flame’s effect upon aunt that, one day, while partaking of food, the nervousness—resulting from what she had seen—caused the condition of constant twitching, which persisted for the remainder of her life.
  • Berezhany Yizkor Book (1978), image 481 {y48}
    ... before dawn, as we expected them to do, they ap-peared suddenly at 7.30 a.m. and began their work with more cruelty than before. At the beginning, they succeeded in gathering many Jews from the synagogues, but those Jews who were still at home succeeded in hididng, or slipping away and evading the Gestapo. As a result they were short of the number of Jews required by their plan. They continued the "action" the following day until the goal was attained. They took away from us more than 1.500 persons. The train made it's way to the extermination-samp in Belzec. On the way some of our people succeeded in breaking down the doors of the wagons and those, who had strength and luck, jumped from the train and came back to town, to start anew. On the morrow of this "action" the Germans collected ...

    ... card bore all the particulars of the persons past and also of his present. Our active life came to a standstill oil of a sudden. The Library was closed down, and the books disappeared. Not a vestige remained from the Dramatic Circle. The various Zionist movements were liquidated. A Hebrew word was considered (as a crime against the Government.) Everything one did was by order, according to a prepared plan. A man was only a tiny screw in a big machine. He was forbidden to think or God forbide. to ask questions. We learned to keep silent. The Soviets forced us to spy on the people around us. Once a week, on a certain day. in the early hours after mid• night, one had to appear before the N.K.V.D. and tell them what one heard and what one saw.
