    Videotape testimony of Carl H., who was born in Kirchheimbolanden, Germany in 1933. He recalls traveling to a Jewish school in Worms because Jews could not attend public school; confiscation of their home; deportation to Gurs, then Rivesaltes in southern France; reluctantly departing from his parents (they convinced him to leave) for a children's home in Saint-Raphaël; corresponding with his parents and brother until they were deported; and transfer to another children's home, then to a farm family in Saint-Apollinaire-de-Rias for three years; being found by a cousin after the war; joining him in Limoges; living in an OSE home; and joining his uncle in the United States in 1947. Mr. H. discusses finding his parents' and brother's names listed as deported to Auschwitz in Serge Klarsfeld's book; the kindness of his foster family and continuing contacts with them; his experiences as a United States soldier in Austria in 1952 and on return trips since; his reluctance to visit Germany; and the importance of his friendships with other hidden children.
