    Videotape testimony of Lee R., who was born in Olkusz, Poland, in 1905. He recalls his prewar life and speaks of the rise of antisemitism before the war. He relates his separation from his wife and small son when the Jewish men of Olkusz were sent to Katowice and from there to Siberia, where he remained from 1939 until 1945. He describes his return to Olkusz after the war, where he learned that the rumors of the murders of his wife and son were true; and he tells how, upon his return, he made arrangements for the restoration of the cemetery, which had been vandalized. Though he appears to be in a continual state of mourning, Mr. R. speaks of his efforts to live in the present.
