    Videotape testimony of Otto K., who was born in Prague to upper middle class parents around 1921. He speaks of joining a Zionist youth movement at the outbreak of the war; the deterioration of the Jewish situation in Prague; and his deportation to Terezin in May, 1942. He describes living conditions there, where he worked in a vegetable garden and was a member of the ghetto's Zionist council. He relates his and his family's transport to Auschwitz; their stay in Birkenau family camp B2B; his job caring for children from a children's barrack until July, 1944, when he was sent to Schwarzheide, a slave labor camp in Germany; and his liberation there.
