He received his PhD in history from Hebrew University, was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Chicago and director of the Oral History Division of the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at Hebrew University. Among Prof. Levin's many published books and articles is Fighting Back: Lithuanian Jewry's Armed Resistance to the Nazis 1941-1945 (1985), for which he was awarded the Yitzhak Sadeh Prize in Military History. He is married to Bilha nee Deutsch and is the father of Nitzana Borosh, Bosmat Levin, and Tzvi Levin. Professor Zvie A. Brown was born in Warsaw, Poland, arrived in Kovno during the Nazi conquest of Eastern Europe where he joined the underground and then fought as a partisan against the Nazis.. He subsequently studied at Hebrew University, receiving his BA (1952), MA (1957), and PhD (1964). In addition to serving as senior lecturer, he was a research fellow at Yale University(19651966) and guest lecturer at the University of St Andrews in Scotland (19701971). He went on to teach philosophy at Hebrew University and from 19771980 served as chair of the philosophy department. .


..".the more he became involved with it, the more he realized its significance and what an important learning tool it could be for countless people with gaps in their knowledge of the Holocaust years."

"What is particularly crucial about this book is that Levin interviewed the partisans more than half a century ago, and was thus able to get firsthand stories of many [who have since died.]"
