    Videotape testimony of Marek S., who was born in 1912 in Kamionica Strymonylova, a small town near Lʹvov, Poland. He describes his early family life; the outbreak of the second world war; his army transfer from Lʹvov to the battle front; and his return home to occupation by the Russians. He tells of the deportation of many Jews to Siberia; the German occupation in 1941; his flight to Lʹvov, where he was captured by Ukrainians; and his work in the Lʹvov ghetto, where his sister also lived. He recounts being jailed for several days; his work as a camp gardener in Janowska Road, a camp within Lʹvov; witnessing brutalities within the camp; his transfer to barracks near the factory where he worked; and his smuggling bread to his sister. He recalls the liquidation of the ghetto; sheltering his sister; and her capture and murder. Mr. S. relates working as a butcher until 1944, when the S.S. liquidated his factory; and his flight from Lʹvov to his home town, where he hid in a loft for 300 days; and his liberation a few days after he left his hiding place. Mr. S. also reads from a diary which he kept while in hiding.
