With a special passion of religious feeling in the ghetto, in the vanguard, were the Jewish Orthodox youth, in the group of the so-called " Gerer Hasiddim". In cellars, in attics, and in corners of overcrowded homes, this youth was found studying Talmud in a moving disregard for the tragic reality. In the search for Divine truth, disregarding the persecution and the danger to life, they juxtaposed their deep faith to the bestial German mob to whom they were given as prey. They had a collective life helping each other, ready for the greatest sacrifices in the conviction that the blood sacrifice was for a purpose. They looked proudly into the eyes of death. They walked proudly in their long "bekeshas", in their different Hassidic clothes, defenseless against the armed German brigands, fanatical, unyielding in their observance of the most minute religious rules. Their youthful activism was completely consumed by their religiosity which kept growing commensurately with the tragedies befalling the Jewish community. They took up passive resistance, ignoring the German orders. In longing for God, who abandoned his people in their greatest pain, ready every minute for death, they treated it as an act of "Kiddush Hashem"(sanctifying Gods name), a sacrifice for the Jewish nation and the Faith. They were convinced that they were living a historical moment which demanded a sacrifice of life. They were 100 and when after the liquidation of the ghetto the Germans were leading them to death in Plaszow they walked courageously, in ecstasy, like real martyrs of faith. The Hangmen put them in rows and shot them one after another. People working in the camp at a certain distance heard a scream of "Shma Yisrael", one after another, and then a bang of a fallen body.
