  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 422 {y24}
    FOREWORD By Aaron Seligson This Yizkor book is an attempt at group biography. The history of its subject, the Jewish community of the Suwałk vicinity, is traced from the time of its founding through to its catastrophic destruction. More than twenty years have now elapsed since the outbreak of the second world war and the ensuing almost complete annihilation of the Jewish Community in The Suwałk vicinity. Time enough for us to view the events in their proper perspective• Suwałk was the first city with any sizeable Jewish community to be conquered and occupied by the Nazi horde. It, no doubt, owes this prominence to its strategic location in ...

    ... drown out the sounds of the prayers. Saturday afternoons would find circles of Jews congregating in the "Marek". A good deal of verbal bantcrings would be heard here. The kibi-tzers would analyze the week's activities of "Kohol," the distribution of the Alyioth, and intersperse their observations with mild gossip and off-color jokes. 'I'lic town enjoyed these "open Uf forums" and one looked forward to these sessions. Later in the afternoon, weather permitting, the women moved out their chairs and sat in front of their homes and exchange Sabbatical greetings with the men strolling leisurely to Shuhl. Subsequently the sitters would close up thus forming clusters of female gatherings in the "Marek." Here confidences were exchanged, the latest styles discussed and attempts at match-making made ...

    jacob d. brand Tuesday was market day. The merchants looked forward to this day. A good market day meant that they would meet their financial obligations and their creditors' pressure would be eased off for a spell. The farmers brought their produce on horse drawn wagons. These were surrounded by prospective buyers who felt out the livestock, checked the size of the eggs and sampled the fnjit or vegetables. Hard bargaining followed and the trade was consum-mated. The farmers then spent 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 ...

    ... Brzezany. when the Germans occupied the town. We. those who have come back, lived like one family. All of us lived in one section, far from the ghetto and from those people and places where we dwelt during the rule of the Nazis. We had a strong desire to get away from the local population, a great majority of whom, gave a helping hand to the murder of the Jews. We were look-ing forward to the day when we would be able to leave that terrifying place, where our lives and the lives of our dear ones were brought to a premature end. Our situation after the liberation, by the Soviets became more difficult than before the Nazi occupation. The non-Jewish population, as well as the Soviet government could not forgive the fact that we remained alive. They saw in us an unwanted remnant. They, as well ...
