Merchants and Shopkeepers of Miedzyrzec Podlaski as I Remember them (Reconstructed from Bits of Memory)
Languages of publication
The communication refers to archive documents edited by Slawomir Manko, published in 'Kwartalnik Historii Zydow' (2005; No. 4(216)). The terse information contained in the Report of the Town Sanitary Commission (from 1938) is enlivened by details concerning traders, shopkeepers and their families, and life in Miedzyrzec Podlaski in the inter-war period in general. These details, kept over many decades in the memory of the town's inhabitant, made it possible to recreate the picture of life in a small township, the coexistence of the Christians and the Jews, and also to revive the memory of some of its Jewish inhabitants. The article helps to broaden the knowledge of Polish-Jewish coexistence in the years preceding World War II.
