    Interview Summary
    Simon-Tov Razon, born in Salonika (Thessalonike), Greece in 1919, describes attending Jewish school; his neighborhood (number 151); being recruited into the Greek Army in 1939; being near the border of Bulgaria and in the mountains for 7 to 8 months in 1940; joining the partisans in 1942; obtaining a false identification card as a Christian with the name Simon Demandopolis; how their partisan base was in the caves in the mountains and there were women among their group; sabotaging the railroad stations; receiving orders to go to the villages and shoot so as to make it seem like they had large forces and thus encourage the farmers to join them; how his partisan division consisted of 3000 people, among them 10 to 15 Jews who got weapons and food from farmers; how after seven months after liberation he met friends from the Jewish Agency; his immigration to Israel; and his adaptation to that society.
