A Book of Questions and Answers


Contains questions and answers and other matters that were relevant
during the times of murder and destruction by the Hitler Army of Murderers
in the Kovno Ghetto, in the years 1941-1945

I wrote these things in the days of horror, that they should be kept in memory.
May God see the affliction of His people and may we not suffer sorrow any more

An appendix to the book contains the names of our rabbis and teachers
the heads of the holy Yeshivas and the holy and pure students, from the land of Lithuania,
who were killed on Kiddush Hashem [sanctification of the Holy Name],
May God avenge their blood
