    ... that everybody treated him with respect and affection. It was due to his initiative and enterprise that the cultural-national center of "Beit-Yehuda" was inaugurated at the end of 1922 or the beginning of 1923. Though pupils of Polish schools were forbidden to participate in any public activities without per-mission from the school administration, Prof. Korn did not hesitate to enlist the two Jews in my class, Shmuel Rosner, rest his soul, and myself, to work in the establishment of the center. Donations were collected from the Jews of the village and the sur-rounding shtetls and a hall rented in the main street, near the gymnasium. There was a library boasting the best of Polish and Yiddish literature, as well as a lecture hall and social gatherings. Every Saturday lectures were ...

    ... couldn't give any lectures while in uniform. I came up with an idea: "Fine! Come to Chrzanow on furlough. Before the evening begins, you can change into civilian clothes and speak as a civilian." Schiper approved the idea, and came. Shortly before he was to go on, we realized that we didn't have a suit that fit him. Just then Motl Rosner came along. He was exactly Dr. Schiper's size. In the wings they ex-changed clothes, and Motl Rosner stood backstage in Schiper's uniform until Dr. Schiper was finished. On that occasion Dr. Schiper drew a parallel between the drama Vesele-Weding by the Polish writer Vespianski and Y.L. Peretz' The Golden Chain. I'll never forget the historical comparisons Schiper drew between Polish Jews and non-Jewish Poles, when he finished his speech. "For you Poles ...

     Chrzanow We, the Jewish community center committee—consisting of Dr. Rieser, Dr. Cyfer, Boruch Kinreich, M. Shor, M. Rosner, Yachtsye Rosner, Miriam Friedlander and others whose names I do not recall—went to Henryk Lowenfeld and outlined our modest plan to him. He listened attentively to our ideas, and answered like a true philanthropist: "Certainly, I'm interested in the town's well being, especially because there is a contingent of fine, modern young people in town, who dress in modern clothing, in short jackets and without peyes. But why such a modest building? I'll build you at my own expense a huge building with a modern theater and ...

    ... it to mention Karl Gutskov's Uriel Acosta and Jacob Gordon's The Slaughter, both of which were performed in an artistically sound man-ner. In fact, when a Jewish theater troupe once came to Chrzanow, they immediately left, saying that their second-rate productions would get nowhere in Chrzanow. Thus our cultural work was carried out under the capable direction of Motl Rosner. We decided to build a Jewish community center. Zelinger's hall was too small for our productions. In a Jewish community center we would open a Yiddish library, a reading room, and a theater with a real stage. This effort, then, would constitute our cultural program. We assembled all of the nationalistic organizations in Chrzanow for this purpose. Every organization came to the first meeting except for the Bund ...

    ... ambitions. The first piece we performed was a one-acter by Sholem-Aleychem called Advice. It went smoothly, and we were quite successful. I came up with the idea of doing Goldfaden's Binding of Isaac. For that, however, we needed female performers—and what young woman from Chrzanow would appear on the stage with boys? The first pioneer among the young women of Chrzanow was Yochtshe Rosner. God knows whether she is still alive. She was Yoysef Melech's daughter. She said to me, "If my mother lets me, I'll be in your play." I asked her mother myself, promis-ing that I would be responsible for maintaining moral standards. Her mother gave 129
