    ... worked all day and all night without resting until enough matzot had been baked for everyone. There was no matza flour for sale and every housewife had to make her own by grinding matzot with a rolling pin until it became flour. The time between Purim and Passover was given to getting everything ready for the Seder night and Passover. The wine for the four cups, the bitter herbs and the horseradish. All these things can be bought today "ready made", but in those days it all had to be made at home. On the eve of the Passover they would check there was no hametz in the house, in the storerooms or bams. During the inspection ceremony, which fascinated the children, they would scatter pieces of bread in every comer and afterwards would go and look for them. The inspection ...

On Sundays, the day of rest of the peasant women water-carriers, they brought water from the well to replace all the water which had been used up on the Sabbath. In winter they swept away the snow and in summer banked up the mud near the entrances to the houses. They also collected the junk and the garbage which had collected in the back-yards. Be-fore the Holy-Days they were sent to the "shochet" (ritual slaughter) loaded with heavy baskets of fat-tened hens and ducks while the most they could ex-pect for themselves in all these rich repasts were a few bones to suck. They helped in times of trouble and in times of joy. For family celebrations they carried in the ben-ches and tables ...

They would not be inclined to delve into the garbage cans of their memory to re-create those pale, dead-eyed shades that crawled along, silent and in constant fear, scratching the insides of the soup-bins with their bluish fingers, to be driven away again and again and pick at the garbage, seeking a mildewed crumb of bread ? Who would remember those miserable creatures, ... some smattering of what we, the living dead, thought and felt, pondered and spoke about. Upon the graves in which we are buried alive the world is celebrating a witches’ Sab-bath in a satanic dance; the beat of the feet smothers our groans and our cries for help. By the time we are taken out of our graves we will have been asphi-xiated, non-existent, dust to be dispersed over the seven seas. Then every ...
