Approximate Translation:

The most valuable thing for a person is their life; it is given only once, and it must be lived in such a way that there will be no excruciating pain for wasted years, so that the shame of a petty and trivial past does not burn. By devoting all your life to the main cause, you must be ready to face any challenges and sacrifices to achieve your goals in the name of humanity's liberation.

Dying in the battle against fascism, you are the happiest and most chosen among people, you will achieve the easiest and quickest escape from oblivion. Have you done everything to defeat this evil? Learn to live so that your life will be unforgettable, and make it so that it is invaluable!

The future is always about ideas and meanings.
