After Poland was liquidated, the Austrian government began to collect the taxes which the Jewish Communities of Galicia still owed to Poland and among them. Boiberke owed as much as 126 Florins. In addition to all these taxes, the Jewish communities had to buy war bonds for the war of 1794-1799. Another edict was issued that every Jew who was nine months behind in payment of taxes should be expelled from Galicia. This went so far that in 1789. the district commissioncrcr of Berzian. of which Boiberke was a part, issued a decree to expel 1.050 Jews, many of them from Boiberke. In 1791 there was a census among the Jewish population of the Bcrziancr ...

    ... she tried to suppress her painful feelings. However, she was not always able to overcome her sorrow, when she thought no one was noticing she burst into tears to relieve her pain. My mother mostly sought refuge in her teats while lighting the Sabbath candles. The Pesach Seders also elicited the same emotion. We had the impression that everything would get back to normal and that time would heal the wounds, but my mother carried the grievous pain deep down in her heart. In the meantime, my sister Etke Reisel got mar-ricd and lived in Lwow. A little later, in 1935, my brother Moshe left for Eretz Israel.
