    Videotape testimony of Abraham B., who was born in Bardejov, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1929, one of four children. He recalls his family's affluence; attending Hebrew school; his mother's death from a stroke; deportations of Jews; the family's exemption due to his father's business; moving to Nitra, thinking it safer; a Catholic man hiding his father, sister, and two brothers in his home for several months; moving to a bunker their rescuer built when it became more dangerous; liberation by Soviet troops four weeks later; returning to Bardejov; emigration to the United States in 1947; and his father and sisters joining him in the 1950s. Mr. B. notes continued contact with their rescuer, the happiest man he has ever known; his refusal to accept compensation or recognition (he did not want others to know he saved Jews); and difficulty understanding why he was saved and others were not. He shows photographs.
