    ... himself to collect the payments of debts. He never approached then as a claimant, but with downcast eyes would ask the debtor if he had any anything to pay towards the debt, knowing that if the money was not returned to the cash box, he would not be able to help any more of the needy who would come to him for help. He would wear his legs out running to the far reaches of the town to collect a contribution from a person commemorating the anivcrsary of a death (Jahrzeit), and if he did not find you at home the first time he would return a second and a third time, even if the contribution was for the amount of half or one zloty ! The posters asking for contribution he would paste up himself on the walls of the prayer rooms ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 555 {y94}
    ... Be’av, when bathing is forbid-den — the children would dip in the "bedel-wasser" splashing to their hearts’ content, naked as Adam and Eve had been before they learnt the meaning of shame. They tried to swim the length of the creek, always careful not to leave the limits of the Jews’ "territorial waters." As to the depth of the "bedel-wasser", the child-ren put it this way : If you stand on your head in it, its water reaches right up to your ears. From all this it becomes clear that the "bedel-wasser" was not, God forbid, a public danger. Its waves never swept a swimmer away and no one had ever drowned in it. It did overflow in the rainy season, but then no one swam in it because of the cold. Neither did this "flood" cause any serious damage. At the most the rising waters swept some ...

    ... means possible, regardless of whether it was morally questionable. Naturally, there could be no supervision of the expenditures. This in turn gave rise to rumors that the members of the Judenrat were getting rich at the cost of their brothers' suf-fering. At the time it was impossible to determine whether this was true, and today it is utterly impossible. The first major task faced by the new ... the daily problems didn't stop, they were manifested in minor incidents, which we had simply gotten used to. Pious Jews, who refused to remove the "image of God," their beards and peyes, for all the riches in the world, had to withstand great trials. These Jews were sentenced to remain shut up at home, summer and winter. Even when they were at home, countless times a day they were seized with ...

    ... 83 HUSIATIN MEMORIAL BOOK rumble of wheels as wagonload after wagonload of eggs were taken across the border. Every day of the year, even sometimes on the Sabbath, the wagons rolled incessantly. In the fall, in addition to eggs, went all kinds of foodstuffs; wheat, corn, sugar and beets, exported to Austria, Germany and even to the far reaches of Rus-sia. The roads and railroad trains in Austria were modern and it was easier and faster to reach the far places of Russia via Aus-tria than to send them over the old and broken roads and ways in the Ukraine. Our house stood on a hill. In the evening, from our windows, we saw the lights on the "other side." During the high holidays we could hear the chanting ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 441 {y94}
    ... life seems to pass before her: child-hood, youth, the short and happy family life, a home, a husband and a child. She sees her parents’ home, the shtetl, the fields and forests. Everything rushes by, confused as in a pack of shovelled cards. Picture follows upon picture and all are marked with a black stain : the spacious apartment left abandoned — a family nest destroyed, doors and windows broken, ... goods’-commando unit is already loading the clothing, still warm, upon the trucks... Los ! Los ! Somewhere in the land of the Huns a little Cain was born to order, to serve the state. The Reich’s treasury pays him well for his work, Krupp has al-ready prepared a gun for him. It is for his sake that Avremeleh’s shirt, lovingly embroidered by his mother, is being transported. And the world ? ...
