    Videotape testimony of David D., who was born in Leipzig, Germany in 1937, the youngest of four children. He recounts living with foster parents in Bournemouth, England after being sent on a kindertransport (he thought they were his biological parents); good relations with them and their daughters; being told in 1946 that his parents were alive and he had three siblings; resentment at leaving the only home he had known; living with his siblings, uncle, and aunt in London for a year; reunion with his parents in New York in 1947; his sense he was living with strangers; and only recently learning from his brother what his parents had experienced during the war. Mr. D. discusses lack of feelings for his parents, having been too young to understand what they had gone through; appreciation for the opportunities he has had in the United States; reluctance to share his past, even with his children; attributing his success in business to knowing he had to be on his own; living in the present; and realizing his parents did the best they could under difficult circumstances.
