    Videotape testimony of Shelley Z., who was born in Zboriv, Poland (presently Ukraine) in 1935. He recalls Soviet occupation; German invasion; anti-Jewish violence and round-ups; ghettoization; crowding, starvation, and disease; his father's contacts with a non-Jew while working outside the ghetto; being smuggled out with help from his father's contact; hiding with his parents and brother in the contact's attic; fleeing to the woods when their hiding place was discovered; returning since there were no other options; their contact and his brother digging a hole for them in his cellar; hiding there with two others; their rescuer offering encouragement and bringing them food; his father telling stories to "keep us sane"; pleasure at hearing Soviet artillery; having no food or water when Germans hid in the cellar; and liberation by Soviet troops.
