    Videotape testimony of Jack T., who was born in a small town near Vilna, Poland in 1918. Mr. T. describes his observant parents; living in Vilna from 1921 on; graduation from Vilna's Hebrew Academy; German invasion in June 1941; round-ups by Lithuanian police for mass killings of Jews at Ponary; ghettoization; removing his star to smuggle food into the ghetto; obtaining a job in the H.K.P. camp which gave him some protection; and escape, with his future wife and her family, to a bunker. He recalls liberation by Soviet troops; emigration to the United States with his wife and child with assistance from HIAS; establishing his business; and serving on a committee which compiled a book about Vilna. Mr. T. reads extensively from this book and discusses the partisans, the importance of his faith, and many members of his family and his wife's family who perished.
