This is an article by a young Polish partisan who graphically explains what it is like to kill a man, an experience he deplored:
"Before he realized what was happening, I was on top of him and at his throat. It was an awful job. I could feel the muscles in his throat moving under my fingers and saw deadly fear in the whites of his eyes...Then all at once he gave a shiver and relaxed, I released my grip and he fell to the ground."
"In spite of what is said about the lust for killing, a normal person cannot enjoy taking life."
