    ... was attached to the District of Lemberg, and after 1780, Boiberkc belonged to the Bcrziancr District. Drastic changes in the Jewish communities took place after the Austrian Queen, Maria Theresa, issued the Judcnordnung. In each community a committee of six Jews was established, however, their rights were few. They had to issue rules in accord with the demands of the Austrian government. One of these rules was the imposition of taxes on Sabbath candles. Eligibility to vote was based on the payment of taxes. The head of a family who had paid for a year before the election for 10 candles for the Sabbath, could read and write in German, and had a good name, had the right to vote for candidates for the Parliament of Vienna and for the Landtag (Assembly) in Lemberg. Every Jew, both ...

    ... the strength needed to write, to create a mirror that will reflect and express our tragedy. But this writing must not be judged on its literary merit. It must be regarded as a document, with due attention paid to the place and the time. The time is just before death; the place — the gallows. Only upon the stage is the artist expected to scream, weep and groan according to all the rules. After all he is not in pain Who would criticise the actual victim himself for groaning too loudly or weeping too softly ? Though we are fumblers from the literary point of view, yet we have something to say. Even those who are utterly mute are not silent in their pain; they scream, albeit in a language of their own, the language of the mute. It is only the uB0nches’’ (the reference is to Bonche Schweig ...

    ... mind and that was to go to Israel, then Palestine, which is where the majority of us ultimately went. At the beginning, we still lived in very confined con-ditions. Although the war was over, we were still surrounded by armed guards, of the occupational forces, and we could not move about freely without an official pass. Once a person was shot in the leg when he tried to disobey these rules. Gradually things became more relaxed, the guards were removed, and slowly we picked up the broken threads of our lives once more. There were some touching reunions and romance blossomed too. We had our own orchestra, stage dances, ran our own food and clothing stores, our own kitchens, and we even had our own police, courts and prisons so that we could dispense justice ourselves. Zionism was very ...

    ... I saw two of our group lying, shot, in front of the shed... they had gone outside during the night to attend to their bodily functions. The guards tell us "These two planned to escape, so we shot them. Anyone who wants to leave the shed at night, must do so completely naked". This wc are only told now. Two of us became victims before the witty lawmakers told us their clever rules. Those who had passed out (On the journey), had recovered in the meantime, and were considered fit enough to join the work parties. Only four were still in a serious condition, lying without treatment or medical help in the shed. We are informed that those who suffer a prolonged illness, will be killed. At this, I go to the camp commander, knock on his door, and subserviently go into his room. He immediately ...

The girls stop their giggling out of respect for the pious atmosphere and go on gossipping in whispers which, too, is stopped by the chorus : "For the sake of ritual matzes !" The girls roll out the matzes with celerity, raising them up against the light to see if they are thin enough.
