    822 FOREWORD of Suwałk. By 1862, after a series of unsuccessful Polish revolts and the stimulus of an increase in persecution, widespread emigration commenced. Suwałk Jews emigrated to the four corners of the world- Their destinations were such far away strange places as New York, Johannesburg, the Argentine, Hungary, London, Montevideo and the Holy Land. Zionist Suwałk, it can be noted, was the first community to actually send envoys to Pa-lestine to purchase land. It should also be remembered that the immigrants from Suwałk were in the forefront in the migration from Rastern Europe and that it was as a result of their influence and aid ...
  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 421 {y24}
    824 FOREWORD This Yizkor book is written then, both as a memorial to our dead and as a symbol of our rebirth. It is written to show the world the spirit of the Jew. As important as mere personal survival is to each and every one of us, the survival of an idea, of a faith, of a religion, of the right to be different is more important than even life itself.

For, no matter how many of us arc gassed, or how many of us arc cremated, so long as one of us survives, or so long as one of our hooks remains or one of our ideas endures, wc ...

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 ...
