  • Dobromil Yizkor Book (1980), image 61 {y140}
    ... Dobromil never heard of Lieberman’s association with Freud's noted disciple Helene Deutsch, nde Rosenbach in Przemysl (L.M.). During the same years elections were held in Dobromil for a Jewish communal body, the "Kultus." The community split on class lines, the ,well-to-do" forming one party, the small traders and workingmen another. The latter nominated Zeisig the tailor and Hersh Flank the cobbler, but in a campaign marked by extreme hostility they were not elected. Petty as were the differences in wealth between employers and employees, or between property owners and property-less, class hostility was all the more acute in the tight confines of the small town where everyone knew everyone else. (A poor "trager," a carrier of burdens, went to his landlord’s door on Yom Kippur ...

    ... who subsequently was mur-dcred by the Petlura hordes. A Bolshevik stood alongside me, a gun pressed against my heart. Ascending from my cellar, I opened the door. The mentioned Bolshevik was assured that no Petlura men were in the building. The Bolshevik seized my meagre sugar and flour supply; how-ever, after prolonged effort, on my part, he was persuaded to return it to me. I had earned my livelihood therefrom. Quitting my home, the Red soldier made his way to Moishe Blank’s dwelling, and shot to death Blank’s eldest son, a youth of promise. Mourning his murdered son, Blank recited the ancient Jewish Biblical passage, t4God hath given and God hath taken." Every evening, I would point out to the children the hiding place of my meagre funds, for none knew who would ...

As they lay whisper-ing and chanting their last prayers, SS gunners wielding auto-matics sputtered bullets into the prostrate. Then the plank was tipped and the dead and wounded dropped into the grave and three Jews covered them wtih dirt. On top of them another row of bullet riddled bodies were dropped, and another, row upon row, until they filled the graves to the brim. Out of their depth faint, muffled moans floated upward and echoed mournfully in the forest of blood, but the sound of the rapid murderous staccato 8purt6 of steel quickly ...
