Reb Shmuel Penner, of blessed memory, father of Reb Yosseph Penner, may God avenge him. He was the oldest veteran in the shtetl and died at the age of 97. To his very last day he needed neither spec-tacles nor a cane. Reb Abish Weiss, of blessed memory, the father-in-law of Reb Leibish Seiler, may God avenge him, about whom you have written in the name of Avru-meleh Reich, who had received an important mark of commendation from the Austrian Government. His family was proud of the fact that he had spoken with the Kaiser when the latter visited Yaslo, though I never heard about it. "Der Deitcher Bekker". This was the name we knew him by, and I don’t know ...

Under the pretext of taking them for special work assignments, nazi henchmen loaded them in a truck and drove them through the woods in the direction of Bruchnal. There they were tortured to death. The agents who carried out the action spoke Polish. For a time nobody knew the fate of the twelve. Five weeks later their frantic relatives found them in the woods under a pile of sand hurried with some hapless Soviet soldiers. The corpses were naked and mutilated, placed in grotesque positions, and ...

Chaim Zeiler were Reb. Abraham Kornfelds Sima Kuflick’s, Mendel Filer’s (he died in Mexico) and Reb. Gedalie Filer’s; also the houses of the Laufer Family, David Jonah Markel, and Josef Pener which were still standing ... the "shtetl" in order to find out some valuable information regarding the final moments when the pulse of Jewish life was still alive. The weather, indeed, was not cooperative and it was difficult to take clear photographs of the "shtetl."

    ... break through the German and Polish guards and try to make it home on foot, by begging for lifts and by cart. Having left a wife and a baby born some weeks ago, he could not stay away. He took off the sleeve band — identifying him as a Jew — and set out. No one knows if he succeeded and managed to see his dear ones, joining them on their final journey. Some days later he was followed by Bunick Zeiler, may God avenge him. A week later Bunick reappeared nation, one which boded nothing but evil.

The erstwhile Hebrew teacher, Eliezer Teicher, Glickel Braff’s husband, who had returned to Brzozow from Germany before the war, also collected children, teaching them Hebrew and Judaism in the "Untern Barg".
