    Videotape testimony of Morris K., who was born in Pruz︠h︡any, Poland. Mr. K. describes the Russian occupation, after which he was made the manager of a department store; the German occupation of Pruz︠h︡any; the Judenrat and confinement in a ghetto; and a confrontation between German officers and partisans which led to the liquidation of the ghetto and Mr. K's deportation to Auschwitz/Birkenau. He details his injury during an enemy bombing and his subsequent narrow escape from the crematoria; the death march to Mauthausen; slave labor in Melk; his liberation from Ebensee; brief visits to Germany and Austria; and his emigration to the United States. Mr. K. also describes his participation in survivor activities and his appearances as a school speaker since his retirement in 1976.
