    ... total of SI 1.20 This amont was !said annually by each family of Boiberkc. taxes to the community, and they complained to the authorities. An order was subsequently issued by the authorities stating that the Jews of the surrounding area should gather and decide how the taxes were to be levied. No one should have to pay more than his fair share. It is of interest to note that the leader of the Jewish community held his post only for one month; each month another individual was named. In addition there were Gabbis who occupied themselves with other responsibilities of the town. Once a year elections were held not without the Rabbi; his presence was required. Nine persons were elected and they were to choose among themselves five electors who in turn ...

    ... made by the stu-dents in mastering Hebrew. I still recall the days of "Yamim-Noraim" (High-Holidays) when my father used to explain to us some of the chapters of 44Peyutim" (Liturgical Poetry) from the 4*Yotzroth" (prayers) concerning the "Assarah Harugeh Malchuth" (the ten martyrs of the Roman rulers). How the despotic, satraps cruely killed the 44Tanaim" along with the prominent Jewish Rabbi and leader, Rabbi Akibah. The story afflicted my spirit, I was overcome by emotion and instantly burst into tears. My father attempted to calm me down with the following remark: 44This is no the only cruelty which the Jewish Nation went through. When you study the "Tanach" the Talmud and the "Meforshim’* (interpretations) you will see that despite all the ,,Tzaroth" (troubles) which we Jews ...

    ... in the shtetl at the time, before the First World War, and it took a lot of courage. Reb Diamant was one of the forerunners of na-tional Zionist ideas which were then reaching the shtetl, but he was also a strict adherent to Jewish tradition and always present at the synagogue where his seat was reserved for him. Fanatical about Zionism and Eretz Yisrael, he had replaced his alle-giance to the "Rabbi", common in the Hassidic en-vironment, with that of Dr. Herzl, the great Zionist leader. He was consumed by a burning love of Eretz Yisrael, Zionism and the Hebrew language, and any-one daring to criticise these in his presence was to

    151 promise of a glowing future. He graduated from the Warsaw University with a golden diploma and was a gifted orator. At one time he appeared at a mass meeting on the first of May in the theatre square and spoke after the socialist leader Niedzialkovski. After Lushek’s speech the crowd shouted "Long live the workers of Palestine !״ This was a period of extreme and violent anti-semitism, and a special group of political Jewish re-sistance had been organized by the socialists to pro-tect this "golden youth", as he was called. My sister and I lived through all the horrors of the war. Henrika (Risha), my senior, studied law before ...

    ... from the past. The center of the city re-mains untouched; only some suburban areas and peripheral city streets have changed from their pre-vious appearance. At the present time several hund-red Jews live in Krakow, but they are not visible. It is very hard to find a Jew on the streets of Krakow. We visited the temple where the late Rabbi Dr. Joshua Thon had been the spiritual leader. From there we went to the "Rama-shul" (Ra-beynu Moshe Iserlis). At the rear of the "shul" the cemetary which, has been in existence for over five hundred years, is still present. Still legible on the monuments are the names of the rightous "Tzadikim" and important scholars from past generations. I was amazed that the German murderers had left this cemetary intact; however the public cemetary in Pod-gorze ...
