For eternity the image will be embedded in my heart when my family was snatched away from me for their last walk to Kiełbasin, on November 2, 1942.

Blood flowed from my eyes when the bloodthirsty Nazi murderers took away my father, Yisroel-Moyshe (Israel-Moshe), my mother, Brokhe (Brocha), my grandmother, Dvoyre (Deborah) Pruzhanski, my grandfather Khayim (Chaim)-Osher Pruzhanski, my sisters, Dorele, Lizele and Sonyele.

My brother Perets (Peretz) died as a partisan in the forest like a hero. For your innocent cut off life I have taken nekome in my capacity as a postwar soldier.

We will honor your memory!
