    ... until today... I will never forget when my father, of blessed memory, was sick for a long time, and Reb. Yoshe Glickman’s youngest son, Reb Itshak residing pre-sently in Cholon, sat at my father’s bedside day and night trying to comfort him in every possible way. In the mid-thirties Reb. Joshe passed away and his widow, Freidale, remained with her daughter Ethel Fela Einziger (Penner) / MY GRANDMOTHER CHANAH of her son (my Father) and she took this grief with her to her final resting place. You never heard from her a real sound of laugh-ter. On special family occasions her face put on a petrified, thoughtful expression. I’m sure that at this particular moment she was thinking of her beloved My Grandmother, an anxious expression on her face, was always at work, taking ...

    22 If you drew two imaginery diagonal lines from one end of the rink to the other, one line would take us from the flat rectangular cases of glass for window panes at Wielopolsky the glazier’s, way up to the low, narrow, saw-dust filled cases used to package eggs for export near Penner’s storehouse. The other line began at Koppel Zwik’s house, a low structure leaning on Seiler’s high stone building from which it derived its confidence. With an air of belligerance it defied its critics, as if crying : "Look at who is standing behind me !" The line ended at the crooked, misshapen stone stairs near Eisick Filler’s which led to " ...

    ... we approached the Rynek, a few remaining Jewish houses became visible — the house of the late Reb. Chaim Jakov Katz, the house of Benzion Laufer and Reb. Kalman Wolf. Opposite the house of Reb. Chaim Zeiler were Reb. Abraham Kornfelds Sima Kuflick’s, Mendel Filer’s (he died in Mexico) and Reb. Gedalie Filer’s; also the houses of the Laufer Family, David Jonah Markel, and Josef Pener which were still standing. All other Jewish houses were destroyed, replaced with new living quarters occupied by new and old Christian inhabitants. The apartment in which we had lived was now occupied by our farmer landlord-Rychlik’s daughter. At that time I avoided visiting my old apartment and decided to walk around the "shtetl" in order to find out some valuable information regarding the final moments ...
