Abrashe Szabrinski is a Jewish hero. All Holocaust survivors are heroic, but Szabrinski not only survived, he also joined the partisans after his escape from the Vilna Ghetto and became a leader of guerrilla fighters who lived in the forests and harassed and fought the German invaders.

He and his fighters mined railroad tracks, cut telephone lines, fought battles with enemy soldiers and foraged for food and other supplies. The Nazis made life a living hell for the Jews; the partisans did their best to return the favor.
