Videotape testimony of Andreas S., who was born in Thessalonikē, Greece in 1929, an only child. He recalls ghettoization; obtaining false papers from his grandfather's friend, a police officer; escaping by train to his relatives in Athens to live under the benign Italian occupation; his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and their children escaping to Chalkis on Euboea Island, then joining him in Athens; German invasion; fleeing to Argos with assistance from his father's client; their rescuer's death in an Allied bombing; living on a farm for fourteen months; hiding during conflicts; and liberation in October 1944 by British troops. Mr. S. discusses many relatives that were killed in the Holocaust; continuing contact with his rescuers and their recognition in Greece and Israel; and his leadership role in the Jewish community.
