    ... the "Gvurah" (might) of the Grandfathers. In this respect my "Zajde" was no exception. In the steam bath my Grandfather would climb to the highest step in tht bath and from there call to the bathkeeper, Shmuel Zajnvel, "please pour one more pail of hot water on the stones because it is cold here." Shmuel Zajnvel gave my "Zajde" the answer, "it looks as if there is a frost in hell..."

    ... a great din fills the air. Human voices combine with the neighing of horses, the mooing of cows and the clucking of hens. Part of the square is filled with tripods covered with boards that are joined and tied together and hung with laborers’ boots made of coarse, rough leather with iron cast heels. These are sold by the gentile shoemakers of the poverty-stricken farms in the "Borkowka" and the "Yakliss", the outskirts of the shtetl. Improvised peddler’s booths surround the regular stores, selling haberdashery, toys and cheap fabrics. During the winter, the pcddler-women sit outside in the snow and the biting frost, huddled up in all the

Later he added : "1 am not going to dirty my hands with you lousy Jews, you will die, anyhow, like dogs". We, at once, left the camp. Everyone of us turned to wherever he could go. Outside was a strong frost. Both I and my son were poorly clad, or better to say, we were **naked and barefooted". We went to a peasant, an acquaintance of ours in the village Swidowa. As we entered the house he became very frightened. We looked like living dead men. In our despair we proposed to him to give us a hiding-place or shoot us on the spot. The peasant took pity and gave us food. Afterwards, he dug in the pig stall a deep ...

    ... ’s administrators and teachers were idealists, and fulfilled their responsibilities with love and devotion. The school committee included active Zionists, some of whom were: Fishl Schechter; Yudl Weinreb; Yossl Fuchs; Mattye Schwartz. At certain times the school employed two teachers, at others only one. We inscribe their names with gratitude and great esteem: Jacob Frost; Israel Boruch; Gold; Hochman; Kotlorevsky; Meldung; Gemms, and a woman teacher — Yakub. All the teachers were excellent pedagogues; but the most outstanding was Israel Boruch. He was a G-d gifted teacher, a scholar, who conducted the school with compassion and understanding. It is to him that this writer owes his knowledge of Hebrew, and to him he bows his head with love. Today Israel Boruch is an old man in his eighties ...

    ... language assimilation; there arose a negative reaction to Yiddish (mame-loshn). Yiddish was still spoken by the majority, but scholarly youth and intellectuals inclined to German and Hebrew. One need only mention the Haskalah writers of Brod, the Stanislav author Reuben Fan, the publisher and bookseller Robinson. Jacob Frost, a Hebrew teacher and native of Kalush, compiled and published a Hebrew-German pocket dictionary, which enjoyed great popularity in its time. In his later years, Jacob Frost returned to Kalush and was a teacher in the Toshia School. In 1914, at the outbreak of World War I, Kalush hung out the white flag of surrender, yielding the town to the Russians without a single shot being fired. The police changed into civilian clothes. Reif, the Jewish policeman, whose nickname ...
