    Videotape testimony of Morris R., who was born in Kielce, Poland in 1914. He describes his orthodox family; attending a selective Polish school; antisemitic incidents, particularly by members of Endecja; serving in the Polish military from 1935 to 1937; mobilization five days before the German invasion; retreating to Łódź, Warsaw, then Tomaszow Lubelski; a last stand against German troops; posing as a civilian and fleeing to Lublin; brief imprisonment; traveling to Puławy, then Radom; and returning to Kielce. Mr. R. recounts reunion with his family; hiding to avoid forced labor; arranging to work with his father and two brothers as carpenters to avoid deportation; and liquidation of the ghetto on August 20, 1942 (he never saw his parents and youngest brother again).
