    Videotape testimony of Norbert S., who was born in Lwów, Poland, in 1922. Mr. S. describes antisemitism in prewar Poland; entering medical school after Soviet occupation; persecution and Aktions following the Nazi invasion; his mother being taken in 1941; ghettoization of Lʹvov; smuggling arms into the ghetto; and forced labor in Janowska. He recalls a Romanian medical orderly replacing the injured and sick at appells; producing false work permits with his friend, Edward S.; his sister's escape; the liquidation of the ghetto; his father's death; escaping from Janowska; receiving shelter from an SS officer's girlfriend and his forced labor ex-foreman; rejoining his sister; and receiving shelter with other Jews from a peasant couple. He recounts liberation by Soviet troops in March 1944; serving with his sister in a Soviet mobile hospital; using former collaborators to establish an army hospital in Lʹvov; protecting his rescuers from Soviet harassment; ill treatment when he enrolled at Jagellonian University in Kraków; travelling with his sister to Prague; accepting a position in Marseille, France; and emigrating to the United States (followed by his sister) in 1948.
