Additional topics discussed include his childhood and bar mitzvah in Gdynia; the family move to L'viv in 1935; liquidation of the ghetto resulting in his separation from his father; entering Janowska camp with assistance from a Russian guard; public executions; escape; hiding with a Ukrainian woman; obtaining false papers with assistance from a Russian guard; reunion with his sister in Kolomyi︠a︡; hiding in a stable with assistance from a non-Jewish woman from 1943 until 1944; and liberation by Soviet troops. Mr. S. discusses continuing nightmares and his children's reluctance to hear about his experiences.
