    ... the last Rabbi Baranow was privileged to have. Unlike his predecessors Reb Avigdor was social minded. Though lacking the scholarly eminence of his father, he was the one instrumental in con-verting the large Besdin room into a center of learning. Here the "BETTER" lx›ys spent many hours poring over Talmudic tomes. The Rov himself conducted a shiur with some of the more promising boys. He saw in Zionism the very antithesis of Orthodoxy. The restlesncss of the younger generation, its flight from the Talmud to secular education, its becoming lax in observing the mores and taboos of tradition he attributed to the Zionists. Undismayed, the Rov continued in his set ways, never deviating from his position until the Nazi holocaust put an end to him and his efforts. THE ZIONIST ORGANIZATION ...

    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.

Instead of start• ing their rounding up action before dawn, as we expected them to do, they ap-peared suddenly at 7.30 a.m. and began their work with more cruelty than before. At the beginning, they succeeded in gathering many Jews from the synagogues, but those Jews who were still at home succeeded in hididng, or slipping away and evading the Gestapo. As a result they were short of the number of Jews required by their plan. They continued the "action" the following day until the goal was attained. They took away from ...

To materialize this purpose, they used their energy to destroy and exter-minate. ■by every possible means, the Jwish laborers who were already in the camps, and bring new ones in their place. .With every new group of workers, they received a large sum of money from the Judenrat, besides robbing the workers of their belongings.
