    BARANOW On the cast was the road leading to the "Wasserlaeh" (a body of stagnant water) and to Tarnobrzeg (County seat). The "Wasserlaeh" also served modest economic and social functions. Its polluted waters furnished a limited supply of fish for the community. In winter it was used by the non-Jews for ice skating and on Rash Hashono by the Jews for Tashlich. The narrow lane in the north, paved with broad flagstones, led to the cluster of Jewish institutional buildings such as the Bes Midrosh (Syna-gogue), the Rabbi's residence, and the Mikveh. The road on the north-western corner pointed to Dolansky's "Castle" (The Hoif). This was an ...

    ... as stores opening onto the "Marck." In the middle was a huge gas lamp suspended from a tall post which, when lit, shed a dim weird light on the area. To the north and the south were the water pumps from which the inhabitants hand-pumped their daily supply of water. These pumps rose from wooden structures which covered the wells from which the water was pumped. When in winter the pumps froze or when, due to some mechanical malfunction, the pumps would fail to operate, a board was lifted up and the bucket dropped directly into the well and thus the water was drawn. Rising above the rows of single storied homes in the Marck were two taller structures each having two stories: one in the west, and one in the north. Both ow־ners used the lower floors as saloons and the upper ones for living ...

    ... , a veritable inferno on earth. In camps, and ghettoes brother harassed brother, and Jew battled his fellow Jew. This was the hight of slavishness and degradation. The human-being losts his hopes, stopped thinking and became a blind medium, a mere tool in the hands of his oppressors. There was no one to rouse him from his stupefying sleep. People were drugged, misled and went astray from the human path. The winter itself caused many casualties, besides those, who were murdered by the Nazis. Hundreds died from hunger and epidemics. The spring of 1942. that followed, brought no relief for us. Day after day there came new commands, and with them new and fresh troubles. The Kreishauptmann was displeased with the Judenrat and reorganized it. He added another man Bercio Feld. The Kreishaupt-mann ...

    but it was to no avail. The poverty and shortage grew from day to day. even if one had money he couldn't obtain any food. Towards the winter, the Soviet announced that the whole region was being added to the large family of the Soviet republics. Every person was obligated to obtain an identification certificate. However prior to it, one had to sign that he was accepting Soviet citizenship. .Those who were unwilling to assume Soviet citizen-ship wet* transported to Siberia.

Die Butter z.B. welche ein vorzüglicher Gegenstand des Wochen-marktes im Monat Mai und Juni ist, wo sich viele Haushaltungen gewöhnlich den Bedarf schon für den bevorstehenden Winter an-zuschaffen pflegen, würde gewiss um 30, 40, auch 50 Prozent wohlfeiler sein, wenn für beide Städte statt eines, zwei Wochenmärkte existieren möchten.- Die Erfahrung hat gelehrt, dass die Butter, welche anfänglich mit 18 Groschen gekauft wurde, an demselben Markttage noch mit 30 auch mit 40 Groschen bezahlt werden musste. - Warum? Weil das Verlangen ...
