Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in 1926 in Kovno. In August 1941 he moved with his family (parents and brother) to the ghetto, where he was active in clandestine activities through the Irgun Brit Zion (e.g. printing the bulletin "Nitzotz", educational activities, construction of underground bunkers for hiding). When the liquidation of the ghetto began on 8 June 1944, Berger and his family hid in a bunker, but they were discovered and deported. His mother did not survive. The three men were taken to Stutthof and then to the Kaufering labor camp, where Birger's father died. His brother was killed after trying to escape from the labor camp. Birger was liberated at Kaufering in April 1945. For a time he worked as an interpreter in the American Army, and also became active in organizing illegal aliyah transports to Palestine. He and his wife emigrated to Palestine in November 1947.
