„Lublin, my holy Jewish city, city of immense Jewish poverty and joyful Jewish festivals. Your Jewish quarter was fragrant with the aromas of fresh wholemeal and rye bread, brine pickles, spices, herrings, and the Jewish faith. The prayer house of the Hasidim, the Maharama and Maharshala synagogues, and the prayer houses and prayer rooms of the craft guilds exuded an aura of sanctity over the workaday commercial bustle. Dustcovered porters who stood around waiting for the chance to make a few groszy would duck into the hasidic prayer house every now and again to enjoy the velvet sounds of the voices raised in song”.
