Do Not Forget

by Shlomo Yahlomi

[23 KB] Strzyzow group Once there was a place in Poland, at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, the name of this place was Strzyzow. Small, but important enough to write about. About the Torah scholars, the Hassidim, and about the sound of Torah never ceased to be heard from the inside of the Beit Hamidrash, the kloiz. About the beginning of Hassidism which goes back to the time of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of the Hassidic movement.

We will write about all the stories and legends that were told in this town. The lights and shadows which existed, and had their influence on the town. This place has a historical value to tell about her past. …This book will serve as a perpetuation of the town, for our sake and for the sake of the martyrs who went up in flames to heaven… it is the duty of all those who survived to do everything possible, that this place should not be forgotten. Not by us, nor by future generations. With G-d's help, I told here the stories which I collected from my notebook… which were written.
