Videotape testimony of Max L., who was born in Wuppertal, Germany in 1921, the younger of two children. He recounts attending public and Hebrew schools; antisemitic harassment; participating in a Jewish scout group; anti-Jewish boycotts and restrictions; his bar mitzvah in 1934, the last time his extended family was together; his sister's emigration to the United States in 1936; his emigration in 1937; his parents' arrival in 1938; military draft in 1942; training as a dental technician; marriage; and the births of two children. Mr. L. discusses planning a ten-day visit to Germany in 1987; leaving after two days due to painful memories; and the loss of most of his extended family in the Holocaust.
