    ... die Gewölber zur Einlegung der Wolle von selbigen mieten und lediglich bei der Stadt leben und mit den Einwohnern ihr Ge-werbe treiben. Ob nun also das herzogliche Dominium dergleichen hindern und Leuten, die die benöthigte Ware zuführen und dem Städtchen Nahrung verschaffen, eigenmächtigerweise Imposten auf-legen könne, scheinet wohl wider alle Landesverfassung und Lan-desgesetze zu sein." "Jedoch wir wollen die Entscheidung davon Einer hohen Landes-Instanz anheimstellen und hier nur mit wenigem erinnern, dass das herzogliche Dominium qua sich nennenden Schutzherren der Stadt, in Betracht des von der Stadt überhaupt, als auch von und durch die Tuchmacherzunft insbesondere zu geniessen habenden Vorteils, viel mehr darauf bedacht sein sollte, Handel und Wan-del zu befördern und also ...

    ... age to learn about the Prophets. Julius learned about the Prophets in Yiddish, and since he had a wounderfull memory, while we walked towards Mount Gilboa. he began to recite the lamentation of David when he was informed that his friend Jonathan and King Saul his father, were slain by the Philistines. "Thy beauty. O Israel, upon thy high places is slain; How are the mighty fallen; Tell it not in Gath. Publish it not in the streets of Ashkclon; Lest the daughters of the Philistines rejoice. Lest the daughters of the uncircumsized triumph. Ye mountains of Gilboa. Let there be no dew nor rain upon you, Ncithicr fields of choice fruits: For there the shield of the mighty was vilely cast away. The shield of Saul, not anointed with oil. From the blood of the slain, from ...

    ... death. How well I remember my happy home, Israel Freund, my father, and Rachel, my mother. The girls : myself Celia the oldest, Nusha (that’s what she was called in Brzozow) are now living here, in the U.S.A. My other three sisters : Mania, Macht-chia and Shprintza were killed. Mother was always worried about her 5 daughters, but Father would say : "Rachel, don’t worry, 'mir wellen zei farzuckern’" (farzuckern — a Yiddish expression meaning to make an unexpected sale at a high price). Eli Weiss / A FORGOTTEN FAMILY outside the Jewish section, I am sure that not too many people remember them. It was the family of David Segal.

  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 454 {y94}
    121 was not "lehakhayot" that he had reached but what came after — "vayigva" (and they died) and "vayi-makh" (and God wiped out). The fearful Flood swept him away, together with all the children of Israel who had fallen into the cursed hands of the beast. In January 1942 a new interdict was declared: the Jews must hand in any piece of fur in their pos-session. The German thugs were freezing on the Rus-sian front and the chore of supplying them with warm clothing fell, of course, on the Jewish population. It went without saying that anyone who disobeyed was to be put to death. Old ladies shivering with the cold were forced to doff ...

    ... each pair had to carry one unconscious man to the camp. It’s already midnight. They’re taking us to Prokocim, a village near Plashov. They fire constantly, to frighten us and to ensure that no one escapes. They bring us to the camp sheds, and hand us over to the guards. They force us into a half-completed shed, an open roof, and it was obvious that the previous day heavy rain had fallen. The floor was covered with puddles of water. After our awful journey, we found ourselves on ground that was soaking wet. We beg for a mouthful of water, but it’s denied. "Jews are forbidden to cause a commotion in the middle of the night." They were never short of an answer. At six in the morning, we are awoken from a leaden sleep. The company "Klug, Hoch and Tiefbau", whose head-quarters is in Regensburg ...
