    Videotape testimony of Abraham B., who was born into a religious home, one of seven children, in Kraków, Poland, 1924. Mr. B. tells of the sudden outburst of antisemitism in 1935 and of his discouragement at the sight of his father's defeatist attitude after a period of incarceration following the outbreak of the war. He describes his family's evacuation from Kraków to a small neighborhood; their move back to the city; his unsuccessful attempt to escape from a 1940 deportation order; and his three years of forced labor in an airplane factory in Mielec and conditions in the slave labor camp there. Also described are Mr. B.'s internment in Auschwitz and Flossenbürg en route to Augsburg; his slave labor and illness at Augsburg; transfer to Litoměřice, as a result of his skill as an airplane craftsman; the death march to Dachau; and his liberation by the Americans. Other topics include his subsequent recovery and his postwar opinions on Judaism and his experiences in the camps.
