Julija Šukys received her PhD in Comparative Literature at the University in Toronto. The text presented here is a startling piece of testimony. This is a letter written by a woman recognized as Righteous Among the Nations and former librarian at Vilnius University to Nachman Steinberg, the author of a number of books, a Socialist Revolutionary, and the Commissar of Justice in the Soviet Coalition government of 1917. This letter is unique and describes in details her activities during the Nazi occupation of Vilnius.
