    Videotape testimony of Salvador B., who was born in Preveza, Greece in approximately 1923 and lived in Iōannina, part of the Romaniot Jewish community. He recalls attending university in Athens; joining EAM (National Liberation Front) in March 1942; working with EPON (the youth group of EAM); partisan work in the mountains, Athens, and Iōannina; benign Italian occupation; German occupation in July 1943; obtaining false papers as a non-Jew from EAM people; assistance from fellow university students; evacuation to the mountains with assistance from EAM; joining ELAS, the military arm of EAM; acting as a messenger between villages; learning the Jews of Iōannina had been forced to leave; moving to many locations while participating in many actions; being wounded; hospitalization in Lidhoríkion until the end of the war; learning his family had been deported and killed with most of the Jews from Iōannina; and participating in the civil war. Mr. K. discusses the Jewish contribution to Greek resistance; absence of antisemitism and generosity of Greeks toward Jews; and the murders of his four brothers, his parents, and other close relatives in concentration camps.
