  • Baligrod Yizkor Book (1964), image 420 {y24}
    822 FOREWORD of Suwałk. By 1862, after a series of unsuccessful Polish revolts and the stimulus of an increase in persecution, widespread emigration commenced. Suwałk Jews emigrated to the four corners of the world- Their destinations were such far away strange places as New York, Johannesburg, the Argentine, Hungary, London, Montevideo and the Holy Land. Zionist Suwałk, it can be noted, was the first community to actually send envoys to Pa-lestine to purchase land. It should also be remembered that the immigrants from Suwałk were in the forefront in the migration from Rastern Europe and that it was as a result of their influence and aid ...

    ... of togetherness, or as some all it, their sense of distinctiveness in a concrete manner, whether it be in the political, social, philanthropic or cultural sphere and whether it be in Suwałk itself or in the lands to which these Suwałk Jews emigrated. Because of the surrounding forests, the Lithuanians thought that the area would make a perfect place for a penal colony, and so, late in the Dark Ages, Suwałk was founded. In 1336 Poland assumed dominion over Suwałk as the result of the marital union of Polish and Lithuanian royalty■ In 1795 Prussia became Lord and Master of Suwałk and the Prussians ruled until 1807 when Suwałk took on a French flavor under Napoleons1 rule. It is under the enlightened reign of Napoleon that the first Jews, forty-four in all, were permitted to settle in Suwałk ...

    ... • Suwałk was the first city with any sizeable Jewish community to be conquered and occupied by the Nazi horde. It, no doubt, owes this prominence to its strategic location in the triangular arc! formed by the borders of Poland, Prussia and the Baltic States. The course of events affecting Suwałk Jewry, the stages of humiliation and annihilation at the hands of both the German Nazis and the violently Anti-Semitic Polish, Latvian and Lithuanian peasants, was to be paralleled in the history of the treatment given and the attitudes shown to other Jewish communities unfortunate enough to find themselves under the dreadful yoke of Nazi do-mi nation. This volume is a memorial book dedicated not only to those who lived in the Suwałk vicinity, or those who grew up there, or studied there, or served ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 244 {y32}
    ... . Stories of the Jews using the blood of Christian children for ritual purposes were related by some teachers in the classrooms as historical truths. There was the notorious Wishka, a local girl, daughter of the apothecary who was a teacher of violent anti-Jewish sentiment and imparted them to the class at frequent intervals. When communism was considered a threat to Polish interests, she represented the Jew as a communist. When uncmploy-ment and strikes in the industrial cities were the scourge of the country, the Jew was painted by her as the plutocrat who exploited Poland's sons of labor. A Jewish boy who protested and branded her allegations as untrue was severely punished. Fight between Jewish and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably ...

    ... dominant positions in Jewish life and was therefore the former's natural adversary. Election campaigns and electioneering constituted a lively interlude in the otherwise monotonous life in town. city government Baranow was administered by a council elected by universal suffrage. At the head of the council was the Burmisz or Mayor, who was elected to his office by the councilmcn. The council levied taxes, maintained a police force, jail, public pasture lands (this privilege was enjoyed by the non-Jewish elements only), and in general carried on such activities as normally belonged to such a body. City ordinances assured the maintainance of clean-lines* and hygienic conditions. These ordinances became frequently the cause of complaints as they were not uniformly applied.
