    ... 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 !". At the last moment they let the craftsmen out, sending them home. No one can tell whether the act of letting the craftsmen remain was meant ...

    ... 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".

    ... in the shtetl in those tense times. "Be it as it may, you know more than we do how things are in Poland now. Last Sunday there were "great doings" throughout the night, with call-up papers for immediate enlistment being handed out all around. Those enlisted were : Ha’im Shlomo Fein-gold (Ha’im Bank), Rafa’el Lanner, the son of Shmu’el Rafa’el’s, Trintsher, the grandson of Israel "beber", Bunik Seiller and very many Poles. Many Jews were recruited in the Sanok region. It appears that in the predominantly Polish areas fewer Jews are enlisted than in the towns of mixed Jewish and Ukrainian populations. May it be granted us by the mercy of God that we be permitted to stay in our homes together and that there will be no war. People are laying up some foodstuffs. This we cannot ...
