Videotape testimony of Walter F., who was born in Vienna, Austria in 1919. He recalls his close family; deciding to leave Austria immediately after the Anschluss; antisemitic harassment by brown-shirted boys; traveling to Italy with a cousin; working in Albanian oil fields; moving to Tirana before receiving their visas; a brief reunion with his father (he was waiting to leave for England to join his wife); emigration to the United States; enlisting in the army; and visiting his parents in London when he was stationed in England. He discusses his desire to forget everything prior to emigration except his family and marriage to an American woman.
