    ... unter den deutschen Studenten andererseits, war ausschlaggebend für die Gründung der "Chewrus-sa". Die Studentenorganisationen waren jedoch unerlaubt und jeder Student, der Mitglied der "Chewrussa" war, lief Gefahr von der Schule ausgeschlossen zu werden. Dies hielt jedoch nieman-den ab und nach kurzer Zeit gab es eine stattliche Anzahl von Gewerbeschulstudenten in der "Chewrussa". Anfangs war es eine reine Freundschaftsgemeinschaft, man kam in der Pause zusammen, man besprach persönliche Dinge, aber auch politische Tageser-eingnisse. Nur am Samstag Nachmittag trafen sich die Chewrus-saner zu offiziellen Sitzungen. Sie fanden eine zeitlang in der Mühle Werber und dann in Karl Borgers Privat-Handelsschule statt. Langsam bekamen die Sitzungen Inhalt, man sprach über jüdische Angelegenheiten ...

    ... huge loaf of bread, large as a cart-wheel and wrapped in a sheet. The bread is sliced into respectable portions, someone goes to the but-chers’ for "kilbassa", a cheap immitation of salami made of derma filled with spiced, roasted kasha and leftovers of meat and pork tripe. The farmers push this "salami" into the right side of their mouth, and their lower jaw, possibly eager to taste this delicacy, ... him, but deep in her heart she knows her words are wasted and, defeated, holds her peace. Finally some neighbouring families get together; the women and children are placed in one cart whose reins are placed in the hands of a youth, and it is he who brings them back home. The men are left alone, finally unencumbered by the troublesome wo- express their opposition actively by pulling ...

    ... and controlled it for three years, when they were forced out by the returning Austrian-German armies. After the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, as a result of the defeat in the war, the town entered upon an era of instability, after a continuous rule by Austria for nearly a century. As soon as the war was over, the Ukrainians seized the reins of power and ruled in the town for nearly a year, until they were de-feated and forced out by the Poles who had gradually conquered the whole of Eastern Galicia and annexed it to the independent Polish Stale. 111 1920 when the Bolsheviks invaded Poland, Czortkow too came under their rule for about three months ; then they were driven out by the Poles ...

    ... befell these same nations a few years later. Now, back to our assignment to describe what happened to our town, which mirrors what happened to the other towns as well. As we already noted, the Russian army was forced to re-treat from the Galician front in the summer of 1915. The General Staff, as well as the Czar’s court, felt that defeat was coming ever nearer. The reins were put in the hands of Nicolai Nicolaicvitz, the czar’s uncle, but he was unable to save the Romanoff dynasty, which was corrupted by 300 years of autocratic rule. He looked for a scapegoat on whom to put the blame, and found it in the Jews who lived in the border zones of the front. All the old canards were used: the Jews were spies, they help the Germans and the Austrians by passing them secret military ...

In order to make it easier for themselves in the future, the Gestapo confined us into a much smaller and closed-in ghetto. They brought us into half ruined houses in the Jewish quarter. The living conditions in these ruins were unbearable. Twenty persons were crowded into one room. It was no wonder that epidemics killed hundreds of us.. The ghetto was closed and without a special permit, it was forbidden to leave it.This brought about the breakdown in the barter business with the peasants of the neighborhood.
