  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 465 {y94}
    ... those days through the prism of the Holocaust which ended it all. In the light of the final cataclysm those years could seem idyllic, though nothing was farther from the actual reality. Hatred of the Jews was deeply rooted in Poland. The independence achieved by that country at the end of the 1st World War was accompanied by a wave of pogroms and looting. The orgiastic bestiality of General Heller’s gangs of soldiers — the "Hel-lertshiks" is notorious to this very day. After some years of relative calm under General Pilsudski, anti-semitism again raised its head with ever-increasing brutality. These facts are, admittedly, well-known, but it is necessary to restate them, if only in the light of the facts mentioned above. The 30’s were years of economic crises and general unrest ...

    ... before that, at the end of the previous winter season. During the long winter nights, I would study with Anshel Miller in the Husiatim hassids’ prayer house. My best friend in those days Aharon Weishouse went unwillingly - his family forced him — to Shimon Vunderlich as a tailors’ apprentice. I, too, wanted to learn a trade. In those days, I would spend hours watching the carpenters in Mates Heller’s family, do their work, and I very much wanted to learn that trade. A few apprentices were learning the trade there at that time, but my mother did not let me become one of them. She felt, as was common in those days, that manual labor was beneath our dignity. Because I loved and admired her so much, I did not dare go against her wishes and disappoint her. I didn’t know what to do with myself ...
