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.
