    ... of voices of boys poring over the Talmud, was becoming silent part of the day. The midday hours were now devoted to reading newspapers or books of secular content. The mail brought in daily ten Yiddish (Haint), three Polish (Novy Dziennik) and two Hebrew (Hatzfirah) newspapers. These were all Zionist oriented newspapers. Later there was also a subscription for "The Yid" a Yiddish paper of the Agudas Yisroel. The Zionist Organization "The Farein" fas it was popularly called) in addition to subscribing to a scries of period-icals, maintained an extensive library—a library whose books were studied voraciously, and made available to the youth at a minimal fee. The "Farein" whose membership was of both sexes and whose library contained books whose contents were at variance with the accepted ...

    ... leave thus a protest-document to the coming genera-tions. It should be a warning to us and to the coming generations, that these barbaric deeds are not forgotten, as is written in the Tora: "Remember what Amalek did unto you". This motto should always stand before our eyes, because it has given us in the past the power to stand up and to overcome all those who intended to de-stroy us. There are still a lot of criminals who walk in the world as free men and do not get the punishment they deserve. They are as impudent as they were before, and they are only waiting for an opportunity to rise again and repeat their wicked deeds. It is in order to keep alert against such elements that we are ordered "not to for-get". As this is a memorial document which is meant for the coming generations ...

    ... pipe which never left his mouth. These two, the stick and the pipe, were his "trade marks". He was a strictly observant Jew and insisted on his children and grandchildren’s observing the tenets of "Honor thy father and thy mother' down to the last detail. In his last years Reb Shimeleh transferred his haber-dashery shop to his son, Xaftali Hersch, God rest his soul, father of Moshe, keeping one corner of it for himself, to sell paper goods for writing, packaging and decorating purposes. It is no wonder, therefore, that I was well-aquainted with Reb Naftali Hersch’s sons, especially Moshe. Later our similar life styles brought us to-gether. The family belonged to the Bobov Hassidim and when the sons grew up they were sent to study at the Yeshivot. While still a child Moshe was known ...

    ... and honor of keeping his secret. And now I think, we have the right to say, that David Rozner belongs among the "Thirty-Six Righ-teous Men." Let his sacred memory be an example of the love for his fellow Jews and the fulfillment of "Azov Taazov". To hep in any way and without limitation. May his soul be reTiemlvred in hes ven. In the Jewish faith a legend exists that the con-tinuation of the universe lies in the power of "LA-MED VAV" The Thirsty-Six Righteous Men. I still remember the time spent in the "Cheyder" where we young boys would probe into the actual meaning of a "La-med Vav". Our imagination would rise to some sort of exaltation as each of us invented in his own resemblance his particular "La-med Vav". In a similar way we would also explore the shape of the Messiah ...

    ... worm crawling in his path and would not hurt a fly. A distant relative of Shlomo of the "Lavkiss", he prayed to God for the whole congregation, mentioning their sins but asking for nothing. What was the use ? Twenty five years ago he had lost his leg in battle, and protested and cried : "Where is my leg ? Give me back my leg and let me go home !" But when the doctors failed to give him back his leg, something beyong their power, and the High Command awarded him the Cross of Courage, sending him home a cripple, he some-how reconciled himself to his fate, living ac- you couldn't make much money where people used to buy even a single cigarette. Still, when all went well the owners managed to eke out their "hayuna", a bare living. In the last days of the community in the Shtetl, after ...
