  • Bielsko-Biala Yizkor Book (1973), image 182 {y76}
    ... zu jener Zeit die Vor-Steher der "Bielitzer tolerierten Israeliten" gewesen sind und dass durch dieselben auf der laut Obigem gekauften Realität und auf Grund der obenerwähnten allerhöchsten Bewilligung "ein Bet-haus ganz neu und massiv im gerichtlich erhobenen Schätzwerte von 6838 fl. Cmze. erbaut worden ist". Laut einer Vorgefundenen Originaleingabe vom 14. Juli 1843 haben die hiesigen (Bielitzer) Israeliten "ein Bittgesuch an Se. M. Kaiser Ferdinand I. überreicht und darin um die aller-gnädigste Erlaubnis eine Orgel in ihrem höchstenorts privile-gierten Bethause zu Bielitz aufstellen zu dürfen" gebeten. Die sog. Emanzipation der Juden erfolgte erst im Jahre 1848, als das Verfassungspatent vom 25. April 1848 die Gleich-heit der Staatsbürger vor dem Gesetze aussprach ...

    ... going to their death lev by Shlomo Adler, the wounded veteran of the former war, winner of the Cross of Courage. Would the sight of him touch them, cause them a twinge of ,,conscience"? Naked, built like a Samson, Shlomo marches towards the pit. He is limping on his artificial leg which no one has ever seen uncovered before. He looks bra-vely into the maw of the gun. After all, he is a soldier who fought for the Kaiser and for the glory of... Germany !״ For some reason Rogovsky found it necessary to end this scene by describing an exchange of looks between Shlomo and the thug Otto Swartz (a figure already mentioned in this context, so that some sort of confrontation between the two must surely have taken place). The latter collapses, his gun drops from his hand and he falls in a faint ...

    ... "potchine". Once a week, on market day, Zalmaleh was ap-pointed "peeper", his task being to protect the stall from thieves. Not that the fact of his being there put anyone off from stealing. Say, rather, that the miserable, empty booth posed no attraction to those on the lookout for a more lucrative object of their activities. Unlike his peers, Zalmaleh was loyal to the Kaiser and did nothing to avoid being drafted to the army. Disregard of the law was a serious offence, to his way of thinking, for was it not written "Dinna de malchuta dinna" (the law of the land is the law). Many years later, during the period of Polish inde-pendence, he fell out with his own son over this sub-ject. The latter, after receiving a notification of his conscription, joined a group of friends from ...

    ... and having family ties all over the Empire, were more successful. In spite of all this, however, tens of thousands of Gallician Jews served in the army, took part in battles, were killed or wounded and fought because they had no choice, just like the other nationalities. Though nobody showed much enthusiasm for this war, the Jews still hoped that their Kaiser would ultimately win it and everything would end well. They were encouraged in this hope by the fact that he was backed by Germany, a strong military and technological power. Right from the start the war caused great disap-pointment. The weakness of the Austrian army was revealed with the outbreak of hostilities. It was awkward and inefficient, made up of many nation-alities which were mutually hostile and kept together ...

    ... in order to avoid being sent to the front. ,4Specialists" began to appear who could produce some mutilation not actually dangerous, such as a hernia, a broken limb or a hearing defect as a means of avoiding the terrors of war. There were those who left their homes, fearing enlistment, to hide in far-away places where they were not known, including Vienna itself, under the nose of the Kaiser. There, in the great city filled with refugees, the police were much less effective than in the small villages where all the inhabitants knew each other. In our village, too, there were some youths who. in spite of their perfect health, were not too enthu-siastic about going to the front or becoming a hero of the Empire. Fully aware that the authorities would not permit any ,,self-liberation ...
