    ... a third time, even if the contribution was for the amount of half or one zloty ! The posters asking for contribution he would paste up himself on the walls of the prayer rooms, the meeting place of the Jews. Several days later he would return to the prayer rooms, and would take down the posters from the notice boards, care-fully collecting the drawing pins for future use, so as not to waste the public’s money. If a memorial was to be set up to the " Faithful Civic Worker" — it should be dedicated to Prof. Korn. But our town no longer exists, and this me-morial can only be raised in that place of memorial in our hearts. Events however developed extremely quickly. War broke out in September 1939, and to our dismay the whole plan fell through ...

    ... . This gentile began to work for my Grandfather when he was just a young man and my Grandfather was still in his middle years. This Polish man travelled with my Grandfather all over (as my Grandfather called it: "the whole world"). He travelled with my "Zajde" through all parts of Galicia and to the nearest count-ries of the Austrian empire such as Hungary, and Czechoslovakia. With them they brought wines, gro* ceries and even vegetables. According to my Grand-father’s story, this Polish man, Maniawski, also sup-plied the house with wood for the winter. He would also bring live chickens and geese as well as other products. He was the main supplier of branches "schach" to cover the "Sukah" and even of the "Hoshanoth". My sister, Etka Reisel, named him "the man from tht Royal Imperial ...

    ... question I’ll ask you..." etc. He concludes thus: "Now give me an excuse !" Then, perhaps under the influence of the Hagaddah’s spirit of rebelliousness and independence on the one hand, and the wine imbibed on the other, he winds up strangely with the remark : "...and if you don’t ex-plain it to me I'll explain it to myself." Those who have learned and mastered the "Loshon Koydesh" have no difficulty in chanting the Hag-gadah; not so those who ... would think of criticising it. The only exception is when Mother feels discri-minatcd against during the distribution of "maror" and insists that her portion be increased to "ka’za’it" (a pinch the size of an olive) as the law provided. Not that she knows how much is "a ka’za’it". In her estimation it should be the size of a water-melon. ...

    ... once more goes over the laws of the Passover dealing with matzes baking, refreshing his memory about the prohibit:ons lest it may have become some-what rusty during the twelve months when he had neg-lected them. Fully alerted to all the "suspect" points he enters the bakery, dressed in his best and wearing a serious expression. He is surrounded by his family and all eyes are upon him. He kisses the mezuzah and blesses those present. The precious bag of flour upon tripods, the boards being borrowed from a car-penter. Then some rolling pins are needed, a round baker’s shovel to place the matzes in the oven and another, longer one, to take them out when they are done. The baked matzes are taken out three or four at a time. The utensils are made by neighbouring farmers in their free time ...

    ... crowd set off for the train station. (Here they had to wear their kerchiefs around their necks, because they were outside the boundaries within which they were permitted to carry objects during the Sabbath.) The speaker arrived at the station and unwit-tingly fell into the crowd of Chasidim, who gave him a thorough thrashing, beating him mercilessly and piercing him with pins they had brought from home. He was barely recognizable when they were through with him. The epilogue of this incident, played out in court, is unimportant for our purposes. But two elements are indeed worth noting. One is the decisiveness and aggressive-ness of the zealous defenders of religious Judaism and especially of their leaders, Reb Shloyme Naiman, Tall Yoske, and others, who rightfully or wrongfully threw ...
