    Videotape testimony of Jack P., who was born in Koniecpol, Poland in 1915. He speaks of prewar family life; moving as a boy to the larger town of Częstochowa; his family's flight after the German occupation in 1939; and their return a short time later to the beginning of ghettoization. He relates his and his brother's flight to Russian occupied territory and his return to Częstochowa in 1941 to be with his parents. He discusses life in the ghetto; the liquidation of the Częstochowa ghetto; his selection for slave labor in factories in the remaining "small ghetto"; his unsuccessful attempt to keep his brother with him there; and the active underground resistance which that ghetto sustained. Mr. P. also describes the liquidation of the small ghetto in 1943; his transfer to the HASAG camp, where his wife was; entering the hospital for typhus and escaping disguised as a doctor; and learning of the deaths of all members of his family except for two brothers.
