The Jewish soldiers felt at home in Skernievitz where they were surrounded
with warmth and friendliness. Some of them particpated in the business life
of the city, and remained there when they were released >from the
military.They mingled with the girls, married and with the aid of t heir
inlaws opened stores of their own.

NB one reason for stetl grooms coming >from distant stetl !!
