    ... , Gocth himself stepped in to demonstrate how this should be done, and he was not satisfied until he saw the blood flowing from the faces of the prisoners. In the quarry the prisoners were being forced to carry extremely heavy rocks. After two or three hours of such back breaking labor, they would often collapse from sheer exhaustion. The S.S. would then beat them, kick them and often kill them outright. Another punishment was flogging. The day after the punishment had been administered, the prisoner had to present himself before the commandant and thank him for meting out the penalty to him. After a day of hard labor, prisoners returning to the camp were required to execute various useless tasks—moving wood, bricks, stones, rocks from one part of the camp to another ...

    ... their repetitions, the noise of babies - informing you that your people live and work here. Mikulince~was a sma^ town ^›ut there was a pleasant youth there. We, the youth, used to meet together, in different organisa- tions and movements to sing and to dance. I used to play football with Asher Babad (the son the Rabbi from TIuste) The ball was made of rags, and we would kick it the length of Loshnov Square.

    ... with many classes. For us, the teen-agers, it was a great achievement. This school gave us ample opportunities for a variety of practi- cal jokes. Abraham Tatie (Friedman) was **blessed" with many problems with his pupils because of his blindness. He would always point to the lines of Gemara text with his finger, though he could not see where he was pointing. My older brother would get a big kick out of sneaking the Gemara away from the teacher and then watching the rebbe continue to point his finger, un- aware that the Gemara was gone. The idea of a **general heder’* had great social significance. It often happened that poor children stopped their studies at an early age because their parents could not afford to pay tuition. The poor parents settled for having taught ...

Better die, he answered, "than be cured by a Jew". To our regret he became bet-ter. From time to time he came to the gate of the Ghetto beside which the Hospital stood in order to check whether anybody was smuggling food. He used to raise the women’s skirts and kick them Tode. (We are winning to death.) You may be a good doctor, but you are a bad strategist." Mean-while the Jews were very happy because they believed that Hitler would be too busy to have time to think about them, and meanwhile he would break his neck. The Price Inspector used to come and visit me even before the War against ...
