    Videotape testimony of Rabbi Meyer S., who was born into a rabbinic family in Poland in 1920. He describes in detail his childhood and family life in Poland and in Germany; his family's move to Wittmund, Germany, in 1926; the rise of antisemitism and anti-Jewish legislation; and his family's observance of the Jewish dietary laws in spite of the prohibition of ritual slaughter. Rabbi S. tells of his family's arrival in the United States on July 4, 1935; his father's work as a cantor and shochet (ritual slaughterer) in Pennsylvania; and his own studies at a Yeshiva in New York. He also relates the story of his Hasidic grandfather's heroic death in Stanisławów, Poland, surrounded by 123 members of his family.
