    Videotape testimony of Aladár K., a Catholic Romani, who was born in Podskalka, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1926. He recalls attending school until age nine; working for a hatmaker, then on a farm; a pleasant life where everyone worked, everything was clean, and stories were told at the fireside; persecution of Jews and Romanies when the Slovak state was established; being beaten by Hlinka guards; deportation of the Jews and some Romanies; hiding in the forests; being shot in the foot by Germans; living in Porúbka; attempting to enlist in the military (his brother had already); and his assignment carrying corpses to the cemetery in Humenné. Mr. K. discusses most Hlinka guards leaving after the war, although some remained; their punishment for killing many, particularly Jews; serving in the military; attending school; and establishing music groups, a Red Cross, and fire department in his community.
