  1.Czernowitz was not a melting pot.
  2. Jews were not integrated with the rest of the society.
  3. There was no multi-cultural heritage.
      Every society lived with its loves and hates.
     The only difference was that the Jews were the strongest minority
      and this gave us a sense uf security.
     The terms brought up are from the original unavoidable Czernowitz
       The Jews were also called names , to complete the picture.
