This week's excerpt >from the Yizkor book of Nadworna (Nadvirna) in the Ukra=
ine - "A Hand Which Stuck Out >from the Mass Grave" - tries to come to grips=
with an agonizing question that haunted many Jews who had seen their peopl=
e murdered by the Germans during the years of the Holocaust: The " feeling =
of guilt which probably bothers every one of us: why did we not have the co=
urage and the "Gewure" [which I believe means "strength" in Yiddish dialect=
] to do what one of our people, Simson [Samson] has proven himself able to =
do in the olden times, long past?"
