    ... it didn't prevent the Gestapo from visiting our town each week and shoot-ing a number of persons, justifying their action by claiming that they were clearing the town from typhoid. Actions such as these continued. Eight days before Hanukkah the Kreishauptmann called the Judenrat represen-tatives to his office and told them in anger, that he won stand for the disregard of his command to transfer Jews from our town into neighboring towns. Therefore he said. "You are give eight days in which to select and prepare 1,000 Jews (not one less) and deport them to the nearest town. "Podhaica". The whole project was to be supervised by the "Son-derdienst" and by the Ukrainian-militia. The march would take place during the night of 15—16 December. The Jews would march by foot, 4 abreast. This news ...
  • Bobrka Yizkor Book (1964), image 236 {y80}
    ... the Russian army drawing nearer to Boibcrkc every day the future looked grim indeed. Remaining in Boibcrkc all through the first month of the war, I saw hundreds of wagons with Jewish families and some of their belong-ings passing through or rather, fleeing through the town on their way to Bohemia, Hungary, or Upper Austria including Vienna. They had ample reason for their flight as the Russians, under the command of the Czar’s Uncle. Nicholas Nicholewitch. were arresting Jews right and left. Soon most of the Jewish inhabit-ans of Boibcrkc had fled. Only at the last moment before the Russian army entered Boibcrkc, did I receive permission to leave the town. When I reached the United States, I began to realize that the Jews in the United States would be called on to help them to rebuild ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 406 {y94}
    ... who would always avoid tram-pling a worm crawling in his path and would not hurt a fly. A distant relative of Shlomo of the "Lavkiss", he prayed to God for the whole congregation, mentioning their sins but asking for nothing. What was the use ? Twenty five years ago he had lost his leg in battle, and protested and cried : "Where is my leg ? Give me back my leg and let me go home !" But when the doctors failed to give him back his leg, something beyong their power, and the High Command awarded him the Cross of Courage, sending him home a cripple, he some-how reconciled himself to his fate, living ac- you couldn't make much money where people used to buy even a single cigarette. Still, when all went well the owners managed to eke out their "hayuna", a bare living. In the last days ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 479 {y94}
    ... and examined us "from top to bottom". One of them asked who among the prisoners spoke German perfectly. A young Jewish man named Eisenberg from Bielsko came over and claimed that he spoke German well. He was a tall, good-looking man with a French style mustache and pleas-ing personality. A German officer interrogated him and on the spot assigned him as interpretor to the German command. It is important to take note that the young man, Mr. Eisenberg in his position of in-terpretor was favorable to the Jewish prisoners and with his kind attitude was always trying to help his distressed fellow Jewish friends. A couple of days later a German under officer came to our barracks and asked for twenty persons and that chocolate was the only food the Jewish hostages would ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 489 {y94}
    ... 86 we would not have proceeded without resistance to our destinations. After the examinations, we num-bered, together with the men from Brzozow, 306 men. Now they began to maltreat us for pleasure; under a rain of curses, we had to push 3 heavy loaded vehicles a distance of 300 meters. There was no pur-pose in this work other than to humble us, and break our spirits. Then came the command — jump to attention ! Under the blows of the Gestapo, we were pushed and pressed, quickly and with no resis-tance, into the 3 vehicles. The suffering was impos-sible to describe. The Yudenrat from Brzozow had to supply each of us with a loaf of bread. Members of the Yudenrat threw the loaves into the vehicles (cars) and each man tried to catch them. The conditions were terribly ...
