    ... Aufgaben. Allwöchentlich am Mittwoch fanden im Handwerkerlokal Zusammen-künfte manchmal zwanglos, aber oft Vorträge in deutscher Sprache über aktuelle politische Probleme, als auch kulturelle Themen statt. Es war zu staunen, dass in diesem Kreise sich soviel Verständnis für alle möglichen Probleme in der Diskussion zeigte Um nur einige von den Prelegenten zu erwähnen, möchte ich be-merken, dass Prof. Türk und Dr. Zipper sehr oft als Vortragende zur Verfügung standen. Wenn kein Gastredner zur Verfügung stand, war es der Vor-sitzende selbst, der mit einem vorbereiteten Referat zur Stelle war. Wie wohl der Verband nach aussen hin apolitisch war, waren seine Mitglieder zu 75 Prozent Zionisten aller Schattierungen. Es ist daher kein Wunder, dass der Verband in verschiedenen Kadenzen ...

    ... or that they were enabled to fre- quent the fairs. Only in a later edict published by Joseph Carl Lubomirsky, which we will quote subsequently, were the Jews mentioned directly. Following the decisive victory in 1683 in the battle against the Turks at the city of Vienna, King Jan Sobieski expressed his gratitude for the assistance given him by Lubomirski "in the war effort against the Turk" by publishing a royal decree singling out "the city of Kolbuszowa in the Sandomierz district and Pilsen region" and encouraging it, in a firm statement signed and sealed with the royal seal, to participate in the five annual fairs and in the weekly market-days held every Sunday. In the privilege- document issued in Warsaw on June 3, 1690, in the sixteenth year of his rule, King Sobieski declared ...

    ... the blood which ran like water; the walls and the stones, too, were covered with dried blood. The Nazis and their Ukrainian helpmates broke into the ghetto like wild animals, chased after those of their victims who tried to escape, and killed them mercilessly. A mass murder was also carried out at the Zawonie railroad station, where the men worked. Alongside Dr. Tuerk’s house, there was a strong fence. I broke that fence, and to this day it is hard for me to understand where I got the strength to destroy such a strong construction. My mother fell and I picked her up. The bullets flew over our heads and between us. I held on to my mother, and covered her with boards that happened to be there. We stayed in this hiding- place for a whole day. Then we ran off to the area of the sawmill ...

I felt it a sacred obligation towards those who perished, a pledge we gave each other, in those dark days : "If you survive, remember those who did not. Report to the world. Tell the story of our anihilation and avenge our blood." Now that these pages are brought to print.
