    Videotape testimony of Sandor Arye G., who was born in Cluj, Romania. He describes his active involvement in the Zionist organization in Cluj; his unsuccessful attempts to convince the people around him to flee to Palestine; the partition of Transylvania in 1940; and a trip to Budapest to prepare for emigration to Palestine. He tells of leading a Youth Aliyah group to Palestine via Romania, Istanbul, and Lebanon in 1941; joining the British army as a volunteer in 1942; and smuggling Jewish children from Egypt to Palestine. He relates being sent with his company to Italy, where he became familiar with the situation of Italian Jews and met his future wife, and continuous efforts to maneuver Jewish refugees out of Europe. Mr. G. speaks of receiving news of his parents, who had been in Bergen-Belsen; his marriage in Palestine in 1946; and his work bringing refugees to Palestine/Israel from 1947 to 1952.
