    Videotape testimony of Zoltan G., who was born circa 1925 and grew up in a town in eastern Slovakia. Mr. G. describes his childhood and religious upbringing; the Hungarian occupation; his move to Budapest, where he worked as a cabinet maker; being forced, with his family, to the Sátoraljaújhely ghetto in 1944; and their deportation to Auschwitz. He relates his experiences as a laborer on a farm near Birkenau, where he was the favorite of an SS man; the death march in 1945 from Auschwitz to Gleiwitz, then Buchenwald; his liberation by the Americans; and his physical recovery. He also reflects on his prewar religious disaffection; the denial and passivity of many Jews during the Holocaust; and the gradual postwar lessening of feelings of bitterness and the need for revenge.
