    ... knew we were witnessing the death throes of a vanquished Germany we were convinced After the reversal at the front, when the Russian army began to fight courageously, beating the Ger-mans back, their treatment was radically changed. Hundreds of thousands of Germans were now in Rus-sian hands and served as hostages. The few Russians imprisoned by the Germans were thus encouraged to ... Auschwitz. On the 11th of that month the Rus-sians initiated an extensive attack near the Wisla and within a few days the tension of the camp guards became palpable. Many groups were not sent to work and the S.S., began preparations for the camp’s eva-cuation.

    ... then, both as a memorial to our dead and as a symbol of our rebirth. It is written to show the world the spirit of the Jew. As important as mere personal survival is to each and every one of us, the survival of an idea, of a faith, of a religion, of the right to be different is more important than even life itself. Fach time we take this Book in hand we reconfirm our faith that we as Jews can not be obliterated from this earth. For, no matter how many of us arc gassed, or how many of us arc cremated, so long as one of us survives, or so long as one of our hooks remains or one of our ideas endures, wc survive and our culture, our heritage, our tradition is transmitted, as if by a lit candle, from one generation to the next.

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 their military duty there, or migrated from there or even perished there, or the descendants of all the foregoing, but it is a lxiok dedicated to World Jewry, not only of this generation but of all generations past ...

    ... interesting institution in Baranow was that of "Kinian Sefarim" (The purchase and maintenance of the religious books in the Bes Midrosh.) This institution was unique in that it was administered entirely by boys be-twecn the ages of 12 and 18. Somehow, by common consent of the boys who learned in the Bes Midrosh, one of them was elected as Gabai and charged with the responsibilities of this institution.
