    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Moses S., who was born in 1912 in Stare Sambor, a small town, and grew up there and in nearby Sambor, Poland (now Ukraine). He describes his difficult youth; his move to Borislav; his marriage in 1938; German occupation, Soviet occupation, and German re-occupation in 1941, when he was taken to Russia; his escape to his home town; and his return to Borislav, where he rejoined his wife and young daughter. He relates the ghettoization of Borislav; the round-up of Jews, which he escaped but his wife and child did not; living in a bunker in the forest and working by day in an electrical plant; smuggling himself back into the ghetto; and deportation to Płaszów. He discusses his work building a mine in Płaszów; the liquidation of Płaszów; his transfer to Mauthausen; and back-breaking labor, hunger, and cannibalism in Mauthausen. He also refers to other camps where he was a prisoner, including Gusen I and Gusen II, and tells how he miraculously survived in numerous situations. Mr. S.'s wife, who is present during the interview, tries repeatedly to cut it short.
