    Videotape testimony of Eugen J., who was born in Mladá Boleslav in 1931, the older of two children. He recalls living in Prague; his family keeping kosher and observing Judaism; antisemitic harassment in school; visits to his maternal grandmother's farm near Bratislava; moving to a small village, Libošovice, in the hope no one would know they were Jews; having to register, which revealed they were Jews; his parents being sent for forced labor in 1941; his sister living with Christian farmers (she did not survive); working in a factory; assistance from many non-Jews; learning after the war that his parents had survived; traveling to Theresienstadt to bring his mother home; her poor health; the loss of all the family property; and becoming more religious. Mr. J. discusses his education, many jobs and careers, and assisting the Jewish community.
