    You are thinking of 'golem', Richard.
       
      The following is from Wikipedia - 
       
      A golem (sometimes [as in Yiddish] pronounced goilem) is an animated
      being which is crafted from inanimate material. In modern Hebrew the
      word golem denotes "fool", "silly", or even "stupid", "clue-less",
      and "dumb", and literally means "cocoon". The name appears to derive
      from the word gelem, which means "raw material".
       
      Regards,

      Hi Jan. Only thing I can think of is an Eastern European monster made 
    of mud and rubbish that gets revenge on those who mistreat Jews.
