  • Dobromil Yizkor Book (1980), image 137 {y140}
     About 1905 Dobromil made great progress in municipal lighting, taking a great step forward. Near the Rathaus there was installed a gas lamp. Every evening this lamp had to be lowered on a cord, filled with gas, fitted with a white mantle. When it was lit, it gave a bluish-tinted light. A policeman had the great honor of being responsible for this new lamp. Every evening before the "Mincha-Maariv" ser-vices we had the pleasure of watching how this new lamp was let down and still more to marvel at the heavy black smoke rising from it to the heart of heaven, as once the pillar of cloud in the desert, stretching up to the high dark-ness of ...

    ... and members had to pay dues. The best player on the team was Itche Dobrish, who was killed in the Polish-German War in 1939. Two other teams were also formed, one Polish and one Uk- rainian, which enabled us to compete. Most of the games were won by the "HapoeP’ team. At one game, a fist fight broke out between the 4*HapoeP* and the 44Shzelez" team. Moshe Rathaus, a player on the 44HapoeF’ team, was injured in the jaw in this fight, and suffered a great deal as a result. The referee at the games was Fishel Shor, the very talented son of Yaakov Meir, who was among those who returned to town at that time. 196

    chanics, plumbing or welding were hired by that company. They were treated fairly and their wages were satisfactory. Some of the company facilities were on the "targoviza" and the company also used the courtyard of the Rathaus family home and the lot near the well. At the beginning of 1942, the big synagogue, the pride of Mikulince’s Jews, was destroyed. The beautiful wall paintings done by the artist Jacquex were broken and the stones were taken for use in road construction. The same was done with headstones from the Jewish cemetery. Every day brought new trials. Spring and summer 1942 came and the trees blossomed, the fields turned ...

Februar 1786 gegen den hiesigen tolerirten Jud Hirschl Mendl" vor dem Bürgermeister Christian Krischke, dem Syndicus Jacob Anton Alscher und dem Rathmann Andress Hampel auf dem Rathause zu Bielitz abgeführte Untersuchung, bei welcher die Kläger nichts weniger verlangten, als dass dem Mendl die "Vorkäuf-lerei der Wolle, in Gross-Polen verboten werden möchte, bis Wohin sich selbstverständlich die Macht des Bielitzer Stadt-magistrates nicht erstreckte".

All their love of Eretz Israel and their hopes for the future which were centered on it were reflected in their eyes. And the families themselves — what a privilege ! a grandaughter in Israel! What has happened to all those people ? the grandmothers and grandfathers, where are they now ? Where are all those who devoured that picture with their eyes, hoping in their heart of hearts that per-haps they, too, would live to see such a consumma-tion ...
