    Videotape testimony of Harry L., who was born in Antwerp, Belgium in 1934. He recalls attending Catholic school; German invasion; an unsuccessful attempt to flee with his family to France; anti-Jewish laws; his father arranging for him and his sister to hide separately with non-Jewish families in Brussels; becoming a "convinced" Catholic; learning from his mother that his father had been deported (he did not return); hiding with his mother for six months; liberation; reunion with his sister; meeting an uncle who was in the United States military; and their emigration to the United States. Mr. L. discusses growing up quickly due to the loss of his father and his mother's reliance upon him at a young age; pride in being Jewish; depression in his thirties as a result of his experiences; reluctance to visit Germany; and sharing his experiences with his sons.
