    Videotape testimony of Gejza S., who was born in Dolný Kubín, Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (presently Slovakia) in 1909, the oldest of nine children. He recounts brief service in the Czech military; moving to Žilina after enactment of anti-Jewish laws, then to Bratislava; marriage in 1941; his son's birth in 1942; his father's death; his mother sending him, his family, and his siblings to Budapest to avoid deportation; separation from his wife while saving their son; posing as a Catholic after German invasion; traveling to Stupava after liberation; and remarriage. Mr. S. notes his faith was crucial to him during the war; his children and grandchildren being very religious; and five siblings surviving. Two sons are present and participate in the testimony.
