    Videotape testimony of Herman P., a psychiatrist who was born in Düsseldorf, Germany, in 1892. He describes his childhood; his medical education; conscription into the army and service during World War I; his marriages; and his medical practice in Berlin, where he was Chief of Neurology at the Jewish Hospital. He tells of the encroachment of Nazi influence and anti-Jewish legislation; his attempt in late 1941 to inform the United States Embassy of the plight of the Jews in Poland; and going underground with his wife in 1943 after enabling his sons to flee the country. He recalls the help he received, while hiding in Vienna, from a Jewish former patient, and, in Württemberg, from theology students, as well as his life later in the war as a traveling salesman. He relates his liberation by the Americans in 1945 in Memmingen; his postwar medical practice near a displaced persons camp in Germany; emigration to the United States in 1946; and other aspects of his postwar practice and experiences, including working as a consultant for survivors making claims against the German government.
