    ... included in the memorial book for Brzozow — those of my dear parents and sisters. It is true that my parents appear in the memorial book of "Yad Vashem" but your book commemorates the shtetl where my dear ones and their children were born and where they met an untimely death.

Die Neuordnung der politischen Mappe nach dem ersten Weltkrieg hat manches auch in der "Chewrussa ...

"Thy beauty. O Israel, upon thy high places is slain; How are the mighty fallen; Tell it not in Gath. Publish it not in the streets of Ashkclon; Lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice.
