    Consists of one oral history interview with Hans Fantel, originally of Vienna, Austria, conducted by Rosemary Masters in 2000. In the interview, Mr. Fantel discusses his childhood in Vienn and his discovery, after the Anschluss, that his grandmother was Jewish and he was therefore deemed to have "impure blood." He became a member of the Czech underground and immigrated to the United States, where he married and became an author and journalist. His father, who was Jewish on his mother's side and who had argued against German rearmament, was arrested in 1938 and did not survive the war. After his escape to Czechoslovakia, Mr. Fantel also lost touch with his mother, whom he never saw again, though she survived the war.
