A letter written by Egon Roth , a member of the Jewish underground in Slovakia. In Hebrew, apparently to members of the youth movement "Hashomer ha - Tsa'ir" to which he belonged, who had arrived in Mandate Palestine.
Dear brother[s; i.e. comrades]!
I'm not shedding a tear...
Who knows whether we will will reach the shore[s] of the homeland, and therefore I want to take advantage of this opportunity to inform you [pl.] that our hope unto this day - and perhaps we will yet hear again the echo of our homeland's voice - is not lost.
And if it won't be possible for us to embrace all our brethren in our homeland, please convey to all of them that until the last moment we remembered all those who helped us ease the black and bitter Diaspora journey. Our fate is a bitter one - and you [pl.] have sent us new life.
If only we will be able to come to you and tell you, we have buried the bitter days and you helped us be born again and be again new people and happy Jews."
We will never forget you [pl.] and if you too remember us - [know that] we are living today for all our family.
Be strong and valiant [customary signature in Hebrew, particularly of Zionist youth movements]
