Our Shtetl (cont.)
|Galina Rein, daughter of Abram
and Basya, at 15 years of age
She now lives in Israel
Our first task was to dig a mass grave for the 100 martyrs who had fallen in the first work-camp. We also brought there the body of Hirshe Kharmats. Then we went six kilometers from the shtetl and buried the bodies of the four friends whom we had honored there a few years before.
Over the mass grave we placed a gravestone and wrote on it that these were all that remained of the good and dear Jews of Lintup.

|Inscription on the memorial in Lintup
December 22, 1942. Here lie 93 Soviet citizens
brutally tortured by the German-Fascist invaders
during the years of the Great Patriotic War
The Soviets offered me a good government post, but I decided not to accept it because I felt that I could not live on the ruins and among murderers.
I went into the depths of Poland and from there I wandered through various Jewish refugee camps, until finally I came to erets yisroel and I now live in the old historic town of Sfat.
