It was the center of the *,Gerer" hasidic movement, a group with a hassidic popula-tion in approaching the tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands. Before departing from Poland I was in a state of confusion, resulting from the realization that not long ago three million, five hundred thousand Jews had lived in this Polish territory.
