    ... It was there that tales were told, wine glasses raised in "Le’chai’im", politics discussed and jokes told to everyone’s amusement. Among the reactions elicited from their victims there were often pearls of language and utterances drawing gales of laughter from their hearers. These poor creatures, it must be noted, were very useful in society, doing the dirty work and the No "In Memoriam" of the shtetl is complete without mentioning the backward or insane ... it after some years’ absence, would recognize them immediately — their motely clothing, queer walk, in short, all their "hoilech" (Yiddish denoting unkempt clothing and a bizarre appearance) gave them away immediately and, like malformed and distorted trees, they were ...

    ... several hundred metres before finding the place camouflaged in the forest. When I reached the grave, my whole body began shivering from my discovery. I found that grave par-tially desecrated, the metal plate containing the proper dedication in the Polish language was thrown down. Bones, skulls and skeletons were scattered all over the area, even whole skeletons peered from the deep holes made purposely for the grave. Apparently it was the work of Polish vandals scavenging for treasures of our "kdoshim" who had been resting there for over thirty-eight years. It is very difficult to describe the despair and rage of a Jew at that moment.

    ... . The Zionist clubs, formerly hives of social and cultural activities, were now emptied of all con-tent. The youth was sunk in despair and frustration and the framework began to disintegrate. With the approaching menace of the Nazis the danger became more palpable as the beast began to close in. The young Jews desperately sought the slight-test opening for escape from the flames that were about to consume them, but all the nations of the world closed their doors in the’.r faces. The cells of the condemned were irrevocably shut and the victims betrayed to the hangman. On Friday, September 1, 1939, the citizens of Poland were awakened by the terrible news that the 2nd World War had begun. The boardings were covered with notices contain ing the President’s speech, calling ...

    ... oven, the "kneader" preparing the dough, the "meyreh" (from the Polish "Miara" meaning amount or portion), the "reddler" who criss-crosses the finish-ed matzes with a spiked wheel, puncturing them with tiny holes to prevent them from rising in the oven. This "reddler" has the additional duty of passing the matzes to the oven. About a dozen women are busy rolling the matzes, assisted by two children standing ... on each side of the kneading bowl : the "einshitter" — pouring in the flour and the "eingis-ser" — adding the water. All the matzes used during the Holyday are hand-made. Sometimes a package is received from America containing a machine-made package of matzes, pro-duct of the Manishcwitz firm, and everybody ad-mires the pristine whiteness of the perfect squares, ...
