    Videotape testimony of Bartolomej D., a Catholic Romani, who was born in Brekov, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1928. He recounts his father working in a lime factory owned by Jews; Jews providing them with food in winter when there was no work; attending school until age fourteen; observing deportation of the Jews; locals removing all their possessions; his married sister hiding a Jewish family; a Hlinka guard taking over the lime factory; continuing to work there but not receiving their wages; evacuation by Soviet troops to Humenné; returning home two nights later to find all their possessions destroyed; not identifying Hlinka guards after the war, not wanting revenge; living in Liberec to work; and returning home eight months later, where he built a house.
