Videotape testimony of Walter L., who was born in 1921 in Breslau, Germany (presently Wroclaw, Poland). He recounts graduating from a German gymnasium in 1938; leaving Germany on November 9, 1938; emigrating to Palestine; closely following events in Europe; and the killing of his parents and relatives during the war. Mr. L. discusses what average Germans, and the rest of the world, knew about the murder of European Jewry during the war as documented in his book The Terrible Secret. He notes a novel he wrote led to his research.
