THE LEFT AND THE COMMUNISTS IN YEDINITZ

The Illegal Progressive Workers' Groups

Moshe Shuster

I remember one summer day. The sun was shining high in the clear blue sky. In Yedinitz everyone had already finished their Sabbath morning stew [chulent], and the older people were now asleep, while the younger people were going around the alleys and the courtyards.

Today was an important day for me. I was told in the utmost secrecy that there would be an illegal meeting held somewhere out of town past the Moldavian mahala, to the left of the cemetery on a meadow behind a hill.

Emigres From Yedinitz in Paris

Moshe Shuster

        It goes without saying that Jews are spread out across the globe. The reasons for this were poverty, socio-political reaction, anti-semitism and pogroms in Czarist Russia, Poland and Romania, including Bessarabia, which especially suffered under the gendarmes and security forces. All this forced Jews to leave their hometowns and to search for new horizons and countries in order to try to live in peace with other people.
