    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Benjamin M., who was born in Warsaw. He describes his prewar home environment; life in the Warsaw ghetto; and slave labor experiences on the "Aryan" side. He tells of joining the underground; smuggling food into the ghetto; and smuggling people into and out of the ghetto. He recounts his first meeting with his future wife, also active in the underground; smuggling his parents out of the ghetto to helpful gentiles; Nazi tricks to root out Jews in hiding; and his younger brother's falling prey to such a trap. Mr. M. describes the bombardment and burning of the Warsaw ghetto; the indifference of nearby Poles; and the experience of living on the Aryan side.
