"Yoshe Rozenboym was an energetic [person], a KOCHIKER doer. He was a lovely man, and he was already half a Jewish resident on 'DU.' All of Kovno knew him, and he nearly was an welcome guest. He was one of the most beloved former intellectuals who was living on a guest board. When you need them, they are willing to do anything for you. They always had a lot of free time, and did something, dove in, it was their life. They felt like a fish out of water. He even had a pure physical advantage, he even was able to walk. He had quite long legs, and he was able to walk to Kovno in a short time. And in the morning Yoshe Rozenboym had a concrete plan, and with a half-realization of the plan. He had a printer who who wanted to become an equal partner. He also had several Jews who wanted to invest a little money. Work had to be done. Yoshe Rozenboym lit me up with his enthusiasm, and we were thrown into the work."
