Berkhman told the following to the correspondent of Eynikayt:


"In Armiansk [a town in the northern Crimea] I had the pleasure of informing  Germans that it was a Jew who was striking them. … During our breakthrough near Armiansk, our battalion commander was killed, and I assumed command. The Germans counter-attacked us nine times… and called out to us 'Surrender!'  I replied: 'Der Jude does not surrender!' – and kept shooting from my rifle."
