    ... of artizans, religious minis-trants who do not deal in commerce, and anyone with spare time on his hands — all came to the market ! The possibility of earning something, for most a mere illusion pursued throughout the week with little success, seemed to become an attainable reality on market day. All were excited and walked along purposefully as if, for them, this was a fateful day — "Efsher vet Got besheren a koshere mezieh" (Perhaps God would give a piece of good fortune). And even if that good fortune, if it comes, is only worth a few pennies, hopes are high, as though a big prize were in store for them. "The-gayess" — a general name for the goyim in the vicinity, flowed with their families into the shtetl from both sides of the road. Upon arriving, the goy would help his wife ...

It, no doubt, owes this prominence to its strategic location in the triangular arc! formed by the borders of Poland, Prussia and the Baltic States. The course of events affecting Suwałk Jewry, the stages of humiliation and annihilation at the hands of both the German Nazis and the violently Anti-Semitic Polish, Latvian and Lithuanian peasants, was to be paralleled in the history of the treatment given and the attitudes shown to other Jewish communities unfortunate enough to find themselves under the dreadful yoke of Nazi do-mi nation.

It must be assumed that during the reign of Casimir the Great, in the 14th century, when Jews found refuge in Poland from persecution in Western Europe, they fanned out in its fertile plains and settled along the shores of the Vistula. It is claimed that the cemetery contained monuments (uprooted by the Nazis during their occupation of the town) that bore names of Jews who died some 400-500 years ago. The accuracy of this claim was not established and actual names of deceased arc not available. What is known for certain is that a scries of major fires took place in the 90's of last century.

Suddenly we were attacked by an enemy, who was strong, shrewd corrupt, des-picable and utterly cruel. An enemy, who had only one aim. to exterminate all Jews without exception, in the shortest way and by what ever possible means. To attain this goal, the Nazis mobilized learned professors, scientists, psycholo-gists, medical doctor's and simple scoundrels without any conscience or feeling. They had easy access to the most modern techniques, and thus they constructed a mass-murdering machine such, as was never known in the annals of human history. Agaist such a vicious, shrewd and powerful enemy we stood helplessly believing naively in order ...
