    Videotape testimony of Steven H., who was born in Amsterdam in 1938. Mr. H. tells of his parents' flight from Germany in 1936; the gradual round-up of Jews in Amsterdam after the German occupation; and the failed escape attempt of Mr. H., his parents, and his twin sister in 1943. He relates the family's deportation to Westerbork in the summer of 1943 for two months; his father's successful effort to have them released; the arrest of his mother, himself and his sister one week later; their return to Westerbork; and his father's voluntarily joining them. He tells of his father's bribery to try to insure the family would be deported to Bergen-Belsen rather than another camp. He recollects the family's arrival; their one-and-a-half year incarceration together; the deterioration of the camp conditions; and his relations with other children. He recalls their liberation from an eastbound transport by Russians; the improvement of their life in a nearby village; the arrival of the Americans; and the family's journey to Leipzig.
