    191 Moshe Bank (Feingold) / MOSHE PARNESS ז״ל In Warsaw he ,'peeked and was hurt", as she saying goes, became captivated by the Zionist idea, frequented Zionist clubs, read the modern literature and finally joined the Zionist movement. When the time came for him to enlist in the Polish army he did not resort to ,,self-torture" (,,plaggen sich’’ in Yiddish) as did other Yeshiva youths, but was recruited for two years of active service. When he was released he returned to the shtetl, ,,shortened his capote" but continued observing the tenets and the traditions. His acute awareness of the futility of remaining in Poland made him join ...

    ... patriarchal in his movements, particularly when, himself hungry, he divided the last slices of bread among his children. Shlomo was sensitive to the pain of all the members of his congrega-tion — a man who would always avoid tram-pling a worm crawling in his path and would not hurt a fly. A distant relative of Shlomo of the "Lavkiss", he prayed to God for the whole congregation, mentioning their sins but asking for nothing. What was the use ? Twenty five years ago he had lost his leg in battle, and protested and cried : "Where is my leg ? Give me back my leg and let me go home !" But when the doctors failed to give him back his leg, something beyong their power, and the High Command awarded him the Cross of Courage, sending him home a cripple, he some-how reconciled himself to his fate ...

    ... 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 ...

  • 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 ...
