    Videotape testimony of Larry F., who was born in Cluj, Romania in 1931, the youngest of four children. He recalls his family's orthodoxy; Hungarian occupation in 1940; anti-Jewish restrictions; his father's draft into a Hungarian slave labor battalion (they never saw him again); German invasion in spring 1944; incarceration in a brick factory; a non-Jewish neighbor bringing them food; deportation to Auschwitz/Birkenau; remaining with his brother; a veteran prisoner telling them to say they were older, which saved their lives; disbelief when he was told of gas chambers and crematoria; transfer to Kaufering four weeks later; slave labor in munitions factories; frequent beatings and starvation; assistance from his brother when he had typhus; Allied bombardment during train transfer to Dachau; liberation by United States troops; crying for the first time upon realizing their losses; living in Feldafing and Föhrenwald displaced persons camps; emigration to Canada; assistance from the Canadian Jewish Congress; and changing their name due to antisemitism. Mr. F. discusses his sister's survival in Budapest (her child and husband were killed); sharing his experience with his daughter; and animosity toward the Catholic Church for encouraging antisemitism.
