    Videotape testimony of Harry Z., who was born in Zawiercie, Poland in 1919. He recalls growing up in a religious family, the fifth of eight children; his father's death when he was nine years old; participating in Hashomer Hatzair; German invasion; an unsuccessful attempt to flee; anti-Jewish measures; separation from his family when he was deported to Auenrode in October 1940 (he never saw them again); slave labor building roads; receiving packages from home until 1941; his experiences in Gross Sarne, Geppersdorf, and Klettendorf; liberation from Waldenburg by Soviet troops in April 1945; and returning to Zawiercie. Mr. Z. describes his depression as a result of learning none of his family had survived; marriage in Germany in February 1946; living in displaced persons camps, including Biberach; and emigration to the United States in 1950. Mr. Z. discusses his ever-present sense of loss and the importance of his involvement in the Zawiercie society. He shows family photographs.
