    ... Bielitzer Judenschaft und der vielen zeitweilig dort sich aufhaltenden fremden Handels-leute zu beherzigen geruhen werde, als f) die Judenschaft in Bielitz hauptsächlich dermalen bei dem Bestehen der Erwerbssteuer und anderer ausserordentlichen Lasten in der Besteuerung fast zwei Drittel teile der ganzen für die Judenschaft im Kreise ausgeschriebenen Quote ver-treten muss, was vielen Gliedern von ihnen sehr hart fällt, und nur mit höchster Anstrengung ihre Partialbeiträge zu er-schwingen imstande sind, mithin sehr zu wünschen wäre, dass sie der Wohltaten einer durch die Wochenmärkte etwas erleich-terten Lebenssubstistenz teilhaft werden möchten, da sie bis anher mit ihrem diesfälligen Bedarf lediglich auf die soge-nannten "Kiepler" oder aber auf den Mittelweg durch andere beschränkt sind ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 445 {y94}
    ... from Hungary, sent there by the devil’s spawn Eichmann who made himself respon-sible for their annihilation. They were accompanied by the remnants of the Lodz ghetto. The meeting with the Hungarian Jews who had lived till then in freedom, more or less, was shocking. Another branch of European Jewry had been deci-mated. The end of the war was approaching but the Jews would not live to see it. The newcomers were often hurt by the harsh treatment shown them by the camp’s veterans and their terse and brutal way of speaking — something they were unused to. They were still thinking in terms of human behavior which the camp’s veterans regarded as naive and divorced from harsh reality. In my longing for human converse I made friends with many of them. The women transported from ...

    ... full of men going back, to throw out the Jews and have some "fun" with them : pull out their beards and beat them mer-cilessly. I just managed to jump off the cart, cir-cumvent the "scene of the fun" and cross to the other side of the "Rink" through a side street. There, at one of the outlets from the village, I ... pandemonium, created by the Ukrainians and supervised by the Germans, in* creased, and those who passed there on their way back after us found themselves in a veritable inferno. Very few managed to dodge the rioters, hundreds of Jews were badly hurt and some tens were brutally murdered. Ostrick was not an isolated case. On Rosh Hashana the Germans kidnapped some 200 Jews in Dinov, among them many refugees who had become stranded there, and killed them in the forest closeby. Two men ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 244 {y32}
    ... teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain. The boys devc-loped a method to ease the pain. The victim would run a wet tongue across the painful areas then rub his hand hard against his things to mitigate the sting then march back to his seat in a state of defiance of his teacher. If in view of these abuses the Jewish pupil nevertheless obtained consi-dcrable education it was not due to the efforts of the teacher but in spite of her. The Jewish child "had" to excel if he was to endure in this atmosphere. the cheder Baranow had three Hebrew teachers (Melamdim). One taught beginners ...
  • Berezhany Yizkor Book (1978), image 488 {y48}
    ... transported to Siberia. Others, who received a special "paragraph" in their papers which imposed all kinds of limitations,, particularly in the fields of employment and dwelling. Every person from the age of 18 and up had to work. If he was not employed, he was sent to the "Donbas" region. Those Jews of out town, who had no specific occupation, or those who were superfluous in their trades, tried very hard to create places of work at their own expense, so that they could remain in the town. The majority of the merchants became physical workers. Many professionals did likewise. The artisans organized themselves in "cooperatives". A Soviet official, called a "politrook", was assigned to each place of work. This official was responsible to the Government for his particular sector. Each person ...
