Litman Mor, born in 1917, in David-Gorodok, Belarus, describes his schooling at Hebrew school; being in the Zionist youth movement; going to Vilna, Poland (Vilnius, Lithuania) in 1931 to attend school; antisemitism in 1933; the presumed and assorted escape options from Vilna during the late 1939 to early 1940 period; how at that time he was more afraid of the Russians who then deported Jews to Siberia than of the Germans; remaining in Vilna and obtaining assorted jobs in order to be saved from forced labor deportation; life in the Vilna ghetto and the crowded conditions; being a member of a five person underground cell working for the Judenrat and printing underground leaflets; escaping from the ghetto and going into the woods where he joined the partisans; being given assignments involving intelligence, getting food, collecting ammunition, and sabotaging airports and trains behind enemy lines; leaving the partisans at the end of the war; attitudes of the partisans towards Jews; spending time as a POW interpreter, assisting refugees to emigrate, and returning to his home and discovering the fate of his family; and his feelings toward Germans, Germany, and the emotional effects of the Holocaust.
