    Videotape testimony of Joseph M., who was born in Paris, France in 1938. He recalls his father being wounded while in the French military; visiting him in Beaune-la-Rolande with his mother; his father's return to Paris; hiding with his parents with assistance from his father's non-Jewish employers; moving to a hiding place in the suburbs; wandering off by himself; his mother retrieving him from the police station; his parents placing him with a French family, then with a French concierge (they secretly looked at him weekly, but he was not aware of their presence); hiding with his parents in a suburb; liberation by United States troops; returning to Paris; and emigration to the United States in 1950. Mr. M. discusses the loss of his childhood; his need for stability; the deaths of his entire extended family in Poland; and the pride his grandparents would have had in his children.
