    ... to a close and Poland was emerging as an independent State. As has happened so many times in the past anti-Semitism became the program of the day and on a black day in May of 1919... the 3rd to be exact... a pogrom, which lasted for two days, broke out in Reische. The quiet of the Sabbath was desecrated by the rabble which broke into the great Synagogue where they tore the prayer shawl from the shoulders of the beadle, the venerable Moishe Tepper and left him beaten and broken. Yitzhak Low did not escape the ef-fects of the pogrom. He was caught at the Railroad Station by a gang of Polish hooligans who gave

    ... to the calendar year, but so many years pre or post the conflagration. In the dismemberments of Poland, the southern part of the country known as Galicia (which included Baranow) was annexed by Austria. Under the so called benevolent Austrian regime, Baranow was a thriving community in which lived some 250 Jewish families. Its geographical loca-tion as a border town contributed to its comparative prosperity. World War I imposed changes on the town. Baranow was occupied by the Russians and many skirmishes were fought in and around it. Those who could, migrated deeper inland, to more secure and peaceful locations, there to await the end v
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 459 {y94}
    ... many of them from our village, were ar-rested and taken to Lwow under a heavy guard where they were imprisoned in the large "Brigitki" Prison. Of these only a few managed to pass through the close net of Russian bureaucracy and, strange as it may seem, were released. Tens of thousands of others were sent into Russia, their treatment becoming progress-ively worse. The farther they got into the country the deeper they began sinking into the murky quag-mire of the NKVD machinery. Border patrols were reinforced and latecomers attempting to escape found all the ways closed to them. Those refugees who remained free, realizing that their funds had lost their value and were dangerously low, began organizing themselves for a long stay: on their guard, they tried to familiarize themselves with ...

    ... by what was virtually a miracle. The way to Ostrick was filled with Ukrainian peasant gangs proliferating like mushrooms after the rain, who had organized themselves into gangs in order to rob the refugees of their rucksacks, shoes, money and watches. They armed themselves with sickles, scythes, pitch-forks and iron bars, falling upon the people who sought to rest in the fields. Luckily for us we were encamped deeper within the territory while they chose to attack those in front. Some of the refugees, mainly Poles, who still main-tained a remnant of courage from the time they were in power, put up a fight against them. A murderous struggle ensued as the robbers used their tools vicious-ly, like wild animals tearing whole limbs from the bodies of living people, and leaving the field ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 482 {y94}
    ... and on the same night, for a good price, three Slovakians led us over to Kashov, Hungary. On the Hungarian side near the bridge, the border guards shot at us and came after us with dogs. We gave ourselves up to them. We begged them to free us and since they supposed that we were Christians, they let us go. W'e entered the town and after three days we travelled by train deeper into Hungary. My three comrades received a confirmation that they were Christians, however, m› name, Stefan Rudnik, and the additional information given by me, was not convincing or sufficient. The detectives found out that I was a Jew and wanted to arrest me. I tried to run away, but they caught me immediately. Locked in chains, they lead me to a concentration point that was located in a schoolyard. After ...
