    ... family was sitting and waiting for his arrival. Anyone watching a man who had come to Reb Hirsheleh for advice and saw him listening and con-ccntrating on the problem would have thought that he was watching two partners in consultation about something that concerned them both equally. Seeing the family sitting together on Saturday nights was an unforgettable experience. There was the grandfather, Reb Shalom Horowitz, God rest his soul, at the head of the table, Reb Hirsheleh and his wife Pessia, the sons and daughters — all relaxed and engaged in enjoyable conversation.

Sara Bibber (then secretary of the town Judcnrat) requested my help and I gave her some money. Shortly afterwards Mrs. Horowitz passed away, thus cheating the Hitlerite hangmen of a victim. I cannot speak of the Horowitz family without mentioning their faithful servant, a woman Mrs. Ho-rowitz had brought with her from her birthplace, Tschortkow. She was a simple, illiterate Ruthenian who became a part of the family. A lonely spinster, she was devoted to the children whom she tended from the day of their birth, and loved them with all her heart.
