    138 houses across from the church, which had belonged to the late Hershele Ratz and Ciwie-Feit-Lerner were demolished. Even the house of the druggist Dr. Za-charski, who was killed by the Gestapo, was wiped out. As I stood there I imagined seeing Reb.

(in this he was indubitably right). The second event, in which I played a certain part, was a personal one, but might have had public repercussions. One Friday, as I was returning from a trip, I found Reb Ya’akov Yo’el Wolker and his wife waiting for me. With great concern they told me that their son, Ha’im Itzhak, a dealer in old iron, had been arrested and accused of buying from a Pole an object stolen from the Church. According to their story the thief had, indeed, offered the object to their son but he had refused to buy it, fearing that it was stolen and was connected with the church. The wor-ried ...
