    ... the Rynek, a few remaining Jewish houses became visible — the house of the late Reb. Chaim Jakov Katz, the house of Benzion Laufer and Reb. Kalman Wolf. Opposite the house of Reb. Chaim Zeiler were Reb. Abraham Kornfelds Sima Kuflick’s, Mendel Filer’s (he died in Mexico) and Reb. Gedalie Filer’s; also the houses of the Laufer Family, David Jonah Markel, and Josef Pener which were still standing ... the "shtetl" in order to find out some valuable information regarding the final moments when the pulse of Jewish life was still alive. The weather, indeed, was not cooperative and it was difficult to take clear photographs of the "shtetl." But from time to time the sun came out from behind the clouds and in those moments we took a few pictures. At the end of the Rynek near the house which ...

    ... break through the German and Polish guards and try to make it home on foot, by begging for lifts and by cart. Having left a wife and a baby born some weeks ago, he could not stay away. He took off the sleeve band — identifying him as a Jew — and set out. No one knows if he succeeded and managed to see his dear ones, joining them on their final journey. Some days later he was followed by Bunick Zeiler, may God avenge him. A week later Bunick reappeared nation, one which boded nothing but evil. We marched in the direction of the Regional Offices where the devils were waiting to hurry us on with their clubs. "Loss ! Loss ! Get onto the trucks !".

    ... to pray. No Jew, of course, stopped his tefillin ritual. Prayers were said before morning, as early as possible, and the tefillin were wrapped around the arm so lightly that they left no mark. Jewish children were not accepted at school and the "hadarim" were closed. At first the Judenrat organized lessons for Jewish children, but in a semi-official way. These lessons were given by Chaika Zeiler, may God avenge her. The erstwhile Hebrew teacher, Eliezer Teicher, Glickel Braff’s husband, who had returned to Brzozow from Germany before the war, also collected children, teaching them Hebrew and Judaism in the "Untern Barg". All this stopped with the intensification of oppression and the Jewish children were left without instruction. The little ones were taught some reading and writing ...

The Germans elevated him to the position of inspector. He had my father killed cruelly, as well as: Leib Beck, Moshe Nussbaum, Yaakov Kirshenbaum, Yohanan Neiman, Kalman Birenbaum, Hersch-Yaakov Silber, Yossef Geld- zeiler, Berish Tiefenbrun, Szyja Weissman, Moshe Fenichel, Hersch Stieglitz, Motte Glantz, Israel Gersten, Nucte Biefeld, Mendele Goldberg, Leib Zuckerbrodt, Moshe Tenzer, Moshe Landau and Mordechai Freifeld.

The rebbe of Zlotniki lived in Mikulince and a number of hassids became his disciples. He, too, was supported by the com- munity. The official rabbinic judge (dayan) was Rabbi Heinoh Trief, the "melamed" (teacher). Three ritual slaughters served the city and also performed circumcisions. They were: Yaakov Katz, Lebush Goldhirsch and Berish Horodner. David Zeiler headed the community as its president. Menahem Krankel served for many years as community secretary. 181
