    ... brought to a school courtyard and kept for twenty-four hours. Twice we received nourishment in the form of a bowl of soup from the German military kitchen. The Catholic nuns brought kettles of food for the Polish prisoners. The Jewish hostages from Kolbus-zowa refused to eat non-kosher food and literally starved. I owned a few "zloty" (Polish currency) and asked the nuns if they could possibly buy me some chocolate in town. They fulfilled my request by a half an hour. Our farewell was expressed in a very dramatic way. As our travelling continued we passed cities and villages well-known to me, i.e., Przeworsk, Lancut, Rzeszow, Debica, Tarnow, Brzesko, Bochnia, Krakow, until we reached Zator, a place not far from Oswiecim (Auschwitz). Here we began unloading. Around four o’clock ...

    ... came very soon to an end and after fierce fighting the Poles took over and we became overnight Polish citizens, after having been Austrian citizens most of our lives and Ukrainian citizens in the interim. The good days did not last long. In 1920 the Russians came back as the Red army. Again we had to suffer hunger and privation because there was no chance to earn a living or a possibility of getting any food. Jews lived in Boiberke for hundreds of years, almost from its very inception. It was surround-ed by beautiful scenery of colorful fields and forests. Prior to World War 1 the peoples.

    ... which will never be forgotten. As a result of the terrible conditions at the camp the numbers of those moving to the Ghetto increased. There were about twenty young men among whom was myself. The Ghetto was liquidated in March and we were brought to Auschwitz — Birkenau. As this was mainly a transit camp we made up our nv.nde to exploit any possibility of getting away from this fearful place. Avraham Levite I knew Zvi Rotenberg from my early childhood.

During a certain period he even con-sidered the possibility of emigration from Poland — as he told me in one of his letters. Each time the name of Prof. Korn is mentioned. I see before me his staunch, thin countenance and stern eyes, and I remember our long last journey together in September 1936, a short time before I left on my way to France, to register for studies at the University. I had completed my matriculation exams a few months previously ...
