    Videotape testimony of Harry G., who was born in Prostějov, Czechoslovakia in 1932. He recalls his family's strong Czech patriotism (his father was a decorated veteran); expulsion from school in 1939; attending Jewish school; deportation to Theresienstadt, via Prague, with his mother and younger sister in spring 1942; living in a children's block; attending school; working in the gardens; maintaining contact with his mother and sister; participating in a musical production during a Red Cross visit; liberation by Soviet troops; transfer to Prostějov with his sister; and learning of his mother's death (she had been deported to Bergen-Belsen). Mr. G. recounts living in a Prague orphanage; having to relearn moral standards outside of a concentration camp; and emigrating to Canada. He discusses his sense of being protected in Theresienstadt (he was removed from transports twice), and sharing his experiences with his children.
