|Dear A. Faitelson,|
I thank you very much for the book, In Sturm un Gerangl, authored by you and which you sent to me. As a member of the Underground Fighting Organization (AKO) in the ghetto, I was involved in all the events in the ghetto itself, and knew about the escape from the Ninth Fort, which you organized and led. Nonetheless, when I read the book my thoughts were with all my comrades and I experienced all the dangers and events, and with great anxiety I accompanied your every step. Such an impression the book made upon me, even though, as I said, it was not new to me.
The book is written in a very exhaustive manner, based on documents. It is a giant undertaking, for which you deserve congratulations. The book will certainly contribute a great deal to the history of the Jews in Lithuania and of the Holocaust in general.
Special praise is due to your wife Sima, for her talented and lively poetry. I am very happy that despite everything you and your family arrived at the “proper home," and once again I thank you.
I wish you health and happiness with your family, and pray that we may finally achieve a just and lasting peace, for the sake of the next generations.
Please give my particular good wishes to your Sima, and my appreciation of her poetry.
