Consists of typed testimony, 10 pages, written by Solomon Zalman Baicovitz, originally of Kaunas (Kovno), Lithuania. He describes pre-war anti-Semitism, the establishment of the Kovno ghetto, and life in the ghetto, including witnessing several aktions. He created a hiding place and managed to hide his mother and daughter from an aktion in March 1944 before successfully placing his daughter in hiding outside the ghetto in May 1944. In July 1944, he was deported to Dachau. In April 1945, he was sent on a death march from which he escaped, and was liberated on April 29, 1945. He reunited with his wife, who survived concentration camps, and his daughter, who survived in hiding in Lithuania.
