  • Husiatyn Yizkor Book (1968), image 251 {y198}
    HUSIATIN MEMORIAL BOOK 72 Eve Rubinstein was appointed Secretary; Sophie Resnick— Treasurer. A meeting of those from the Husiatin hometown was con-voked—at Rapoport’s Restaurant, New York—attended by an assemblage of about 100.

  • Kolbuszowa Yizkor Book (1971), image 815 {y239}
    ... the Rzeszow Judenrat had already been shot for failing to meet the full payment. Now the Germans appointed Paszek head of the order-keeping force and head of the money collection and payment. As soon as the Jews were brought into Rzeszow, the Germans dispersed the Judenrats and order-keeping units of the whole district. Only three were promoted to higher positions: Paszek Rapoport and Izak Silber of Kolbuszowa, and Marcuse of Sokolow. Ehaus, whom we mentioned earlier, appointed Paszek as alternate head of the Judenrat of Rzeszow. His task was to collect money, as he had done so expertly in Kolbuszowa. Marcuse was made commander of the order-keeping force in Rzeszow because he had excelled in obeying Twardon's commands. Izak Silber, who was only 16 or 17 years old, was designated Marcuse's ...
  • Kolbuszowa Yizkor Book (1971), image 826 {y239}
    ... a long list of valuable articles that the Judenrat gave them, thus preventing bloodshed. Terror pervaded everything. Even matzah was not baked for that Passover due to fear. The news that reached us from other towns was frightful. We felt the bitter end was unavoidable and near. Hitler's birthday was approaching and rumors circulated that the party had promised the Nazi idol half a million Jews, with each city and town contributing its share of sacrifices. The cruel decrees came in an endless succession; before one was implemented, another was published; life became unbearable. The day after Passover, Paszek Rapoport invited 15 of the oldest,
  • Kolbuszowa Yizkor Book (1971), image 841 {y239}
    ... then could we Jews expect from these "noble" neighbors? As soon as the Jews returned to the city, the Germans began to drag them off to forced labor, first of all to bury the dead: 65 German soldiers and officers, 150 Polish soldiers and officers, 20 Jews serving in the Polish army and 21 civilian Jews, mostly refugees. Among the dead were Shmuel Rosenfeld the tailor, and Pinnie Rapoport the son of Psachya, who came from Aushwitz. Among the wounded were 30 Jews, including: David Leidner, Aaron Birenfeld, David Birnbaum, Rabbi Ben-Zion Horowitz of Majdan, and others. All had to be buried on the Gentile side of the cemetery, Jews and Christians alike, while all the Polish soldiers, including the Jewish ones, were buried in one common grave. Our suffering was aggravated by the fact that only ...
  • Kolbuszowa Yizkor Book (1971), image 842 {y239}
    ... tongues of flames leaped up in all parts of the city where the fires were set by special German units assigned to this task. As the flames drew rapidly closer, the Germans announced they meant to let all of us be burned alive. We had no doubt they would carry out their intention; those were agonizing moments. On one side, the house of Shmuel Weiss was in flames, on another the home of Hayyim Rapoport, and on the third—the house of ,,Sokol". Children wailed, adults began to take eternal leave of each other, many recited their confessions, while rhe entire square looked like a sea of hands, for the Germans compelled us to keep our hands up all the time. We were held thus for four hours, when all at once we were freed. We were not, however, permitted to go home but into the fields of Szymon ...
