Something about cellars. Beside all that was said. I have spent at least 2
nights (if not more) there during the sirens and the bomb attacks. This
summer, here in Israel I was reminded about those times when the sirens
sounded here in Raanana, Israel. There was another thing about "Boydems"-
Attics. The chimneys which passed through the "Boydems" had a small opening
covered with a small door. When the ovens were heated my late mother used to
put pieces of goose breast on a device inside the chimney, and after a day
or more you got very tasty pastrami.
