Dennis Miklos describes his childhood in Ribinice, Slovakia; the family's deportation to the ghetto at Ungvar, Hungary (Uzhhorod, Ukraine) in April 1944; and their deportation to Auschwitz in June 1944. He describes his transfer, with his father, to Buchenwald, where Mr. Miklos was placed in a children's barrack. He describes his father's death the day before liberation in 1945, and life in Slovakia after the war, as well as his immigration to Canada in 1950 and his subsequent immigration to the United States. He describes the parallels between his life during the Holocaust and Elie Wiesel's.
