Videotape testimony of Emery G., who was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1933. Mr. G., whose parents divorced when he was four, recalls life in wartime Budapest; imposition of anti-Semitic restrictions; moving with his mother to several different apartments in the city; German occupation in 1944; going into hiding; discussions among those in hiding of deportations and concentration camps; and executions of Jews. He tells of Hungary's capitulation in October 1944; working as an underground courier for Raoul Wallenberg; being hidden with his mother in the home of her Christian employer; a narrow escape when they were informed on; liberation by Soviet forces; and emigrating to the United States with his mother in 1946.
