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

Nick Levi, born in 1921 in Kavala, Greece, describes his happy childhood; how most Greeks did not support the German regime; going to medical school in Athens until the Nazis occupied Greece; moving to the Thessalonike ghetto and having a difficult life; his Spanish heritage that eventually helped him to get to the United States; the destruction of the Thessalonike Jewish cemetery; his family’s deportation in 1943 to Bergen-Belsen; his removal from the camp because of his Spanish citizenship; and his immigration to Palestine, Cuba, and finally the United States.
