    as i was told in some villages the jews went to the shul hide inside and of course were killed. in other villages, the jews went to the train station or cross road when they got word cossacks were comming. Why? they stood there with any weapon they could and said in effect come on bring it on. needless to say more times than nought the cossacks left as quick as they could, onto the next village. The way to face a bully is to be prepared to take knocks, not be afraid and then give him everything you have. I did to 2 anti-semites in my school.
