He was a gifted boy and did well at school; handsome and snub-nosed, fair haired and of a typical ,,Goyish" appearance. We had mixed classes at the Gymnasium, boys and girls together, and more than one of the Polish girls was attracted to him. Like all his Jewish class mates he was imbued with the Zionist spirit and with them became a member of the Zionist Youth organization ,,Gordonia". One day in the summer of 1936 Shmu’el sur-prized me by visiting me at the commune where I was staying at the time. He told me, inter alia, that though his father had managed to obtain an affidavit to the U.S.A., for him he had decided to go to Eretz Izrael as a student at the Technion ...

There was never a shadow of scandal associated with the administration of this institution. In the final analysis, Baranow, in the last two decades before its destrue-tion, represented a civilization in transition. To be sure, Baranow was not alone in its groping for new concepts ...

Subsequently the sitters would close up thus forming clusters of female gatherings in the "Marek." Here confidences were exchanged, the latest styles discussed and attempts at match-making made. The Baale batim sauntered into the Bes Midrosh. Some would pull out a book from the shelf to suit his mood and degree of learn-ing, settle down at the table and enjoy its contents. Soon another would join him and together they would indulge in relaxed conversation. The "Farein" occasionally produced a short play of skit for the enjoy-meat of its followers.
