Due to recent disclosures about the Arlosoroff murder case, Begin reviews the incidents of July, 1933 and its' aftermath. He goes into detail how he was notified about his friend's, Haim Arlorsoroff, death and the accusations against Abraham Stavsky. He tells the story of his visit with Mrs. Stavsky to Ze'ev Jabotinsky and describes the feeling of "greatness" he experienced. Begin explains how Yehuda Azari, Chief of the Haganah Intelligence, who was involved in the Arlosoroff case, is responsible for the false accusations against Stavsky. Begin criticizes him and speculates why he remained silent for so many years while an innocent man, Stavsky, was being falsely accused. In order to erase any doubts of Stavsky's innocence, Begin requests from Itzhak Gruenbaum, who once wrote an article in favor of "the inciters, the libelers, those who were after Stavsky's blood", to reveal the truth.
