Oral History | Accession Number: 2012.354.8 | RG Number: RG-50.676.0008

Gjorgi Dimovski, born in 1929 in Bitola in the former Yugoslavia, describes his family life and life in Bitola before the war; anti-Jewish propaganda which made him initially fear Jews; the poverty of the Bitola Jews; befriending a Jewish boy in 1938 which alleviated his fear of Jews; his father’s refusal to let him join a fascist children’s organization; the certainty by Jews that the Bulgarians would protect them; restrictions placed on the Jews; the deportation of the Jews in 1943 by the Bulgarian police and army; the selling of looted Jewish belongings; his father moving his business into a formerly Jewish shop; some families in Bitola who hid Jews; and public trials of war criminals after the war.

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