Zeleznikow, John ORCID: 0000-0002-8786-2644 (2011) Life at the end of the world : a Jewish Partisan in Melbourne. Holocaust Studies: a journal of culture and history, 16 (3). pp. 11-32. ISSN 1750-4902

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
