Martin S. Holocaust testimony (HVT-300) interviewed by Dori Laub and Dorothy Lewenz

Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-300

Videotape testimony of Martin S., who was born in Munkács, Hungary, in 1923. He describes the Hungarian annexation and the anti-Semitic legislation that ensued; the ghettoization of Munkács in 1943; his deportation for slave labor first to the Russian front, then to Austria; the horrible conditions of the death march to Mauthausen and the march from there to Gunskirchen; and the desolation surrounding his "liberation" by the Americans. He tells of his postwar return to Munkács, where he learned that his father and a brother had survived; his stay in a displaced persons camp in Germany; and his efforts to emigrate to Israel with his father. Mr. S. repeatedly expresses his disbelief that the many bystanders who witnessed the marches were ignorant of what was happening.
