    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Benjamin D., who was born in Sokółka, Poland in 1915. He tells of serving in the Polish army; retreating from the German invasion; capture by a German officer; transfer to a prisoner of war camp in Germany; changing his name to avoid detection as a Jew; and internment in a Stalag at Alt-Grabow. Mr. D. describes conditions of starvation and brutal treatment; forced labor; deportation of some prisoners to a death camp (he learned this later); letters from his brother in a ghetto dated February 2, 1943 and December 13, 1943; and not knowing the whereabouts or fate of his wife and two children. He recalls liberation of twenty-one survivors out of the original 3,000 prisoners by American troops; traveling to Paris; meeting his second wife; and their emigration to Israel.
