    ... . Es war zu staunen, dass in diesem Kreise sich soviel Verständnis für alle möglichen Probleme in der Diskussion zeigte Um nur einige von den Prelegenten zu erwähnen, möchte ich be-merken, dass Prof. Türk und Dr. Zipper sehr oft als Vortragende zur Verfügung standen. Wenn kein Gastredner zur Verfügung stand, war es der Vor-sitzende selbst, der mit einem vorbereiteten Referat zur Stelle war. Wie wohl der Verband nach aussen hin apolitisch war, waren seine Mitglieder zu 75 Prozent Zionisten aller Schattierungen. Es ist daher kein Wunder, dass der Verband in verschiedenen Kadenzen durch seine Mitglieder Berek, Fleissig, Gerad, Popiol

    ... Polish and Lithuanian royalty■ In 1795 Prussia became Lord and Master of Suwałk and the Prussians ruled until 1807 when Suwałk took on a French flavor under Napoleons1 rule. It is under the enlightened reign of Napoleon that the first Jews, forty-four in all, were permitted to settle in Suwałk itself. That was in 1808 and the Suwałk vicinity, one imagines, must have appeared as a great cosmopolitan area to those Jews; for the Prussian influence was still greatly felt, Suwałk itself was under the control of the worldly French; Scottish rebels had made a settlement in the adjoining town; the countryside was Polish and the Liu and Lithuanians were only a short distance away. Although Suwałk itself was not opened to Jewish settlement until Napoleon's time, there is considerable evidence ...

    ... B A R A N O W By Jacob D. Brand history The origin and early development of Baranow is difficult to trace. There is no documentary evidence available. In the checkered history of Poland, Baranow occupied no special position, notwithstanding its location on the Vistula (Wisla). The origin of the Jewish settlement is likewise unknown. It must be assumed that during the reign of Casimir the Great, in the 14th century, when Jews found refuge in Poland from persecution in Western Europe, they fanned out in its fertile plains and settled along the shores of the Vistula. It is claimed that the cemetery contained monuments (uprooted by the Nazis during their occupation of the town) that bore names of Jews who died some 400-500 years ago. The accuracy of this claim was not established ...

We. those who have come back, lived like one family. 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 ...
