    Videotape testimony of Jack M., who was born in Gdańsk, Poland in 1927 and grew up in Gdynia. He recalls a pleasant childhood in an affluent family; his father sending the family to Działoszyce (his father's hometown) in August 1939; German invasion; his sister joining relatives in another town; moving with his mother and brother to Sławków; substituting for other people's forced labor to earn money; and separation from his family during a round-up in 1942. Mr. M. describes his experiences in Blechhammer, Gross Masselwitz, Dyhernfurth, Brande, Bad Warmbrunn, and Doernhau; forced labor in an I.G. Farben plant; the importance to survival of helping each other; the disappearance of guards at Doernhau; a brief visit to Langenbielau; returning to Poland to seek surviving family; fleeing west; working at the Zeilsheim displaced persons camp; reunion with an uncle and aunt; and emigrating to the United States in June 1946. He discusses the organization of concentration camp life; his ever present memories and sense of loss; recent visits to Poland; and attending a survivors' meeting.
