Videotape testimony of Arnold R. who was born in 1928 in a town in Slovakia, and his brother Lionel R., who was born in the same town in 1926. Both brothers describe their Orthodox upbringing; the Hungarian and German occupations; their life in the ghetto at Munkács; the liquidation of the ghetto; and widespread violence and cruelty. They relate their transport to and arrival at Auschwitz; separation from their mother; their transfer, along with their father, to Mauthausen; and their slave labor in Melk and Ebensee. They also tell of their support of each other and their father during this time; liberation; emigration to the United States; their thirty years of silence about their experiences; the lasting effects of these experiences; and their feelings about passing their memories to their children.
