Indeed it is doubtful whether the Rabbis, who were the first victims of the worst atrocities perpetrated by the accursed sadists, and had been brought as low as human beings could be, were capable of finding solutions for the endless calamities then raining down upon the Jews who were ...

They also collected the junk and the garbage which had collected in the back-yards. Be-fore the Holy-Days they were sent to the "shochet" (ritual slaughter) loaded with heavy baskets of fat-tened hens and ducks ...

    ... finding himself forced to belittle him-self in front of a child, hurrying to greet him as if his living depended on it. Thereafter I made a point of not meeting him face to face and if I spied him in the distance on the pavement I would quickly cross the road so that he wouldn't see me. This incident gives some indication of the extent of the economic straits into which very many Jews had sunk. Our grandfather Shalom Laufer, may God avenge him, came to Brzozow in 1880 from the Slovakian town of Dzilburtsa. He married a Brzozow girl, Mi* relleh Lerner, and established a highly diversified business which did well enough for them to build a spacious house in the heart of the town. In time this building came to house the whole family, all its branches included, and grandfather's ...

This is an attempt to preserve its shadow from complete oblivion and thus, perhaps, put up a modest monument upon the graves of those who have been denied a resting-place.

He had been caught by the Russians in 1939, while crossing the San River but, being a minor (15 years old) had not been deported to Siberia but left in the "Brigitki" Prison in Lvov. When the Germans were at the gates of Lwow the NKVD, prior to its retreat, took all the prisoners, some 300 in number, into the courtyard and executed them all with automatic fire. The corpses, sunk in a river of blood, were left lying there. Two men who fell down and were covered by the corpses of the dead survived. One of them was Men-del. It should be noted that those who opposed the regime or "political criminals", according to the So-viet terminology, were not held in the Lwow prison but had long ago been banished to Siberia.
