    ... no free time except for the Sabbath, because on Saturday night the boy had to go back to work.

Only a few youngsters from Mikulince went to the high schools in the city of Tarnopol, twenty kilometers away. A few studied in Lvov and other large cities. (Medical schools in Poland did not accept Jews, and those who wanted to become doctors were forced to study outside Poland).
