    Consists of the English translation of one short story, entitled "The Hill," by Antanas Jonynas, originally written in 1966. This manuscript tells the story of the last hours of a Jewish doctor, Dr. Schmidt, who was killed with his family in the Kupre Forest outside of Kraziai, Lithuania, on August 8, 1941 by the citizens of Kraziai, some of whom were his patients. The doctor had just finished treating a patient, Joseph Martinkus, who later told the story to Mr. Jonynas. The translation was completed by Yuval Lirov, Dr. Schmidt's great-nephew; Mr. Lirov's mother, Dr. Schmidt's niece, heard this story in the Kaunas ghetto in 1943.
