    ... the purpose of the contribution. The central bowl bears the inscription, written in large letters : GREAT CHARITY. Nobody knows who has promoted this bowl to its task and who it is that determines that the charity it represents is "GREAT". Asking no questions the contributors put in a large coin, to be followed by smaller ones to the ordinary charities... At some distance from the "Table" a sack is spread on the floor and the members of the congre-gation, all God-fearing men, stand in line to lie down on it. One of the Gabbais, whip in hand, gives each one his allotted numbers of lashes, "forty less one" — all are lashed equally. The count is made by re-peating the "Vehu rahum" prayer, comprising 13 words, three times running. If any groans are heard they are made by the lasher rather ...

    ... ". His cart is an open one, with two ladders placed at its sides to hold the fodder and the vegetables brought in from the fields, as well as firewood and construction beams brought to the village. On market day the side-lad-ders are reinforced by "polkoshiks’ (halves of woven reed baskets, to prevent the goods from falling out). One goes to the "Targovitza" with the heavy produce, such as piglets tied in a sack, squirming like fish in the net, the sound of their screams lost in the general noise of the market. There may also be a fattened pig or a calf, eagerly awaited by the butchers. An old cow whose time has come for slaughter or a young pony — these are tied to the back of the cart. The innocent horse is probably glad that they are not part of his burden but he will very quickly ...

    sack, wipes away my salt tears and my little nose and promptly sets me to work. He holds something in his yellow cigarette-stained fingers, a pointer made of bone, to point out the letters to a child. The tears still pour from my eyes, I hardly see what he shows me. I hear him say "This is an *Aleph,' (A), once again right here is another *Aleph/ (A), and another *Aleph’." I follow him with a tearful voice, ״ ,Aleph/ another ,Aleph/ and another ,Aleph’," so several times. Later my mother comes to bring me home. Early next morning there comes to us an assistant who attends to me, helps me get dressed, washes my hands and face, wipes me ...

The Jews were not permitted to flee and they were annihilated. The only ones who managed to escape death were the few captured by the Tartars. In the city of Lemberg, the situation was entirely dif-ferent. Here Bogdan Chmelnitzky himself was in charge of the siege. (October, 1649.) The Lemberg citizens sent a delegation to negotiate with their enemy. The Jews were also represented in this delegation by several of their co-religionists. Chmelnitzky asked that all the Jewish inhabitants be handed ...

    ... bodies of youngsters and women were discovered every morning sprawling outside the gates. One day Wolf trapped two Jewish girls, Sarah Bulz and Mollie Schweizer, at the home of the Ukranian, Stanko. After castigating the Council for laxness, he unleashed his savage German police dog to pounce on them. The dog tore the girls to shreds. Finally they expired by rifle fire. At another time he came upon Reich and a friend who were returning to the ghetto at dawn with a sack of flour. Both of course were instantly trampled to death. The Jews received 10 ounces of bread a day for which they stood in long, weary waiting lines under vicious Jewish
