He recalls a cheerful early life; attending a Jewish school until fourth grade, then a high school for engineering training; observing Jewish holidays, although not orthodox; antisemitic harassment, particularly after 1935; working for a German who was kind to him until 1938; his family receiving United States visas, planning to emigrate in December; his father's arrest on Kristallnacht; his arrest with his mother and grandmother the next morning; finding his father at the assembly place; their deportation to Dachau (his mother and grandmother were released); being beaten after helping a rabbi who was being beaten; bunking with his father and cousin; release with them twelve days later; their return home on November 22; emigration with his family to the United States on December 8; working in a flower shop; his father detailing targets in their town for the United States military; and his draft in 1944.
