    Videotape testimony of Ludovit B., who was born in Trnava, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia), one of eight children. He recalls his family's poverty; moving to Petržalka due to debt; their orthodoxy; attending a Jewish school; working odd jobs; draft into a forced labor battalion; postings in many places including Čemerné, Humenné, Liptovský Svätý Peter; Svätý Jur, and Zvolen; road construction and quarrying; illegally visiting his family until their deportation in 1942; escaping in 1943; a non-Jew hiding him for four days; traveling to Bratislava; obtaining the birth certificate of a non-Jew and using it to obtain identification papers from the police; working in a cemetery; going from home to work and rarely meeting other people; liberation by Soviet troops; and learning his entire family had been killed. Mr. B. notes sharing his story with his children and believing it was a miracle that he survived.
