    Videotape testimony of Nicholas A., who was born in Zagreb, Yugoslavia in 1935. He recalls the tightly-knit Jewish community; fleeing with his mother to Italian-occupied Split; arrival of two uncles and his father; an Italian arranging their passage to Trieste on a troop ship; hiding in various places in the Macerata region from 1941 to 1944, including Sarnona, Loro Piceno, Ascoli Piceno, and Porto San Giorgio; his Catholic baptism; receiving false identity papers; police warnings of round-ups; his sister's birth in 1944; liberation; living in Milan and Rome; emigration to the United States in 1950; and adjustment difficulties. Mr. A. discusses the fates of other family members; a recent reunion in Italy with some of his family's rescuers; his rejection of Judaism until his mother's death in 1974; the importance of his attending a child survivors group; and the great risks ordinary Italians took to save Jews, many of whom were complete strangers. He shows photographs and documents.
