Videotape testimony of Konrad S., a Romani, who was born in Marburg, Germany, one of ten children. He recounts living in Dillenburg until 1943; incarceration with his family in a concentration camp in Frankfurt; forced labor in the oil industry; frequent Allied air raids; escape in 1945; return to Marburg; and receiving German citizenship. Mr. S. notes difficulty receiving compensation for his war experiences; bad health resulting from those years; and sharing his story with his children. A woman survivor of Auschwitz describes her painful memories of Romani suffering and deaths. They both discuss present anti-Romani conditions in Germany, particularly neo-Nazi violence.
