    Videotape testimony of Andre M., who was born in Paris, France in 1931, the second of four children, to Polish immigrants. He recalls cordial relations with non-Jews; his father's military service; German invasion; his father's return; anti-Jewish regulations; support from friends and teachers; his father's arrest and acquittal (they did not know he was Jewish); his father moving to unoccupied France, thinking it safer; being smuggled with two siblings to Mont-de-Marsan, then Grenade-sur-l'Adour; reunion with their father and sister in Pau; their mother joining them; German occupation of the Vichy zone; placement in farm villages using false papers; attending catechism classes; his father participating in the underground; liberation by the Resistance; returning to Paris; meeting survivors of extermination camps; emigrating to the United States; and his hope that future generations remember the horrors of the Second World War. Mr. M. shows documents and memorabilia.
