My mother lived in Brzezin, and were she still alive, probably would remember many of the families mentioned in the yahrtzeit book. A picture of my uncle and aunt, in this book, shows them before they left for Paris, and then NYC. My cousin in Israel and a cousin in New Jersey told me stories of the families I never got to meet. That the town of tailors, and the immigrant society that made a life for themselves, in the US, could produce this lasting tribute to those who couldn't tell their own stories here in the Goldene Medina is a triumph of the human spirit. I am proud that my family, of ordinary people and their friends left this Metzeve for me to mourn their passing, and their humanity during an inhuman period of history. This book constitutes a mitzvah equivalent to the deeds of a chevra kadisha. I have never visited Brzezin or Lodz or Tomaschev where my relatives lived, and laughed, but I did visit Yad V'Shem in Jerusalem, where a tailor left a vest he was ordered to sew from a holy scroll. It was perfectly sewn from a scroll from Eichah, Lamentations, which his tormentor couldn't undestand because it was inscribed in Hebrew.. Yoseph David ben Hunin ha-Levi from the Gotlib family of Brzezin.
