    Consists of one oral history interview, 2 hours, with Martin Kastner, on DVD, entitled "Following in our Father's Footsteps." In the interview, which was conducted on September 3, 2007 by Louise Bobrow, Mr. Kastner describes his pre-war life in a small town in Romania near Sighet. In 1943, he and his family were put into a ghetto (their home was located in the ghetto area, so they were allowed to stay there.) They were later forced into a larger ghetto and in spring 1944 were taken by truck to the train station where they were deported to Auschwitz. Martin and his father, Wolf, survived the initial selection and were sent to a labor camp outside of Warsaw. He was also imprisoned in Dachau and Muhldorf. They were liberated by the American Army, who stopped a train that was taking them further into Germany. After living at the Feldafing displaced persons camp, he immigrated to the United States.
