Afansie Axentiuc, born in 1923 in Pociumbăuţi, Romania (present day Moldova), describes a roundup, deportation, and mass shooting of Pociumbăuţi Jews by Romanian gendarmes in 1941; a Jewish man who set his house on fire and killed himself and his family, rather than be deported; a communist villager who was saved by a Cuzist villager from being killed; the deportation of the Roma population; and the construction of a monument for those who died during the war.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
