"Nationwide partisan movement in the enemy rear plays a crucial role in defeating the enemy. We want to appeal to our brothers and sisters who got under the Nazi yoke, to Soviet people of all nationalities living on the temporarily occupied territories, to glorious national avengers, partisans. We call on you to ruthlessly exterminate the Nazi invaders, destroy the enemy rear and strike the enemy harder and harder every day."
Excerpt from the article "Defending the Achievements of the Great October Socialist Revolution", National Avenger journal, Issue No. 15, Partisan Unit No. 208 named after Comrade Stalin, November 1942
