    Videotape testimony of Barry B., who was born in Khust, Czechoslovakia in 1925, one of six children. In addition to information included in a previously recorded testimony (HVT-1769), Mr. B. recalls his family's poverty, their orthodoxy, and holiday observances; attending cheder and public school; his bar mitzvah; Hungarian occupation; moving to Budapest in 1942; working in a shoe factory; meeting a friend in Mittergars who told him how to survive; receiving extra food from kitchen workers; recovering in Feldafing displaced persons camp and Sopron after liberation; and hospitalization in Sopron en route from Khust to Germany. Mr. B. discusses prisoners who observed religious practices in concentration camps, and notes he does not remember everything that happened to him, which he considers fortunate.
