This study seeks to discuss how one type of Holocaust survivor, namely partisans who fought in the forests, coped in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Through a discussion of the life of Avram Zeleznikow, in the Vilna Ghetto, the forests of Rudniki and post-war Melbourne, it becomes evident that life after the Holocaust was an anti-climax. By the time he was 20, Zeleznikow was a renowned hero. His past 65 years have been dull in comparison. He is only now starting to reflect on ethical dilemmas faced by the partisans
