    Videotape testimony of brothers Abe F., who was born in a small town outside Warsaw, Poland in 1929, and David F., who was born in 1928. They relate the outbreak of war in 1939; expulsion from school; formation of the ghetto; the Judenrat supplying people for forced labor; starvation leading to food smuggling; deportation, despite their belief they would not be taken due to their young ages, to a camp where they assembled gun parts for almost two years; and two youths who were tortured to death for assembling their own gun from parts on which they worked. They describe transfer to Auschwitz, partially on foot; selection for work; transfer to a stone quarry in Vinnen, Germany; horrendous work conditions; survival strategy of doing the least possible work; Abe's hospitalization due to typhus; a death march to an area outside of Stuttgart; transfer to Dachau; transport on trains to the Munich area; and a representative of the Swiss Red Cross providing food.
