    Consists of one CD-ROM containing the testimony of Marcel Burtin (born Szloma Burstyn) that was recorded in 2001, transcribed from the original French by Mr. Burtin's daughter, Joelle Leseuer, in 2008, and translated into English by Sally Case in 2008. In his testimony, Mr. Burtin, who was born in Dzierzby, Poland, describes his family's immigration to France when he was a child, and the first years of the war. In 1942, he went into hiding in the countryside near Paris before escaping to the south of France, where he lived on false identity papers. Mr. Burtin was arrested as a member of the French resistance and deported, first to Buchenwald in January 1943, and from there, marched to Dora-Mittelbau. As the American Army approached in the spring of 1945, he was sent on a death march and was liberated by the Russian army in a small village on the Elbe river. The English translation includes Ms. Case's comments and explanations in italics. Also includes a copy of Mr. Burtin's wartime French identity card.
