'Breuges' #austria-czech

Charlie Roberts <charlie.roberts@...>
 

Regarding Celia's note on Breuges, this word was commonly used at home when
we grew up. My mother's family originated >from Kolomea (previously in
Poland) and then went to Vienna where she met my father before fleeing in
1938 to England. She always used this word - we understood it to mean
offended/angry. During my childhood my parents ran a restaurant in the East
End 'Roberts Restaurant' affectionately known by us as Refugees Corner (just
behind Gardiner's Corner) and not far >from the Yiddish Grand Palais Theatre.
It certainly was a popular word amongst our customers irrespective of where
they originated from.
