    Consists of one memoir, 10 pages, entitled "Zigi's Story," by Zygmunt (Zigi) Shipper. In his memoir, Mr. Shipper describes his childhood in Łódź, his memories of life in the Łódź ghetto, and his forced labor in a metal factory, where he worked until July 1944. He was deported to Auschwitz then to a series of camps, including Stutthof. At the end of the war, he was sent on a forced march and ended up being placed on a barge near Neustadt, witnessing the accidental British bombing of another boat also containing prisoners. He was liberated by the British Army and settled in England, where he married and raised a family.
