Simon Konover (born in Maków Mazowiecki, Poland in 1922) describes his early desires to immigrate to the United States; the languages he spoke before arriving in the US; life in Poland before the war; antisemitism in Poland; the German invasion in 1939; being 16 years old when he was sent to do forced labor on a farm; the terrible conditions for the laborers; escaping with several others and returning home; hiding in the basement when the Germans came looking for him; going to Russia; never seeing his family again; and his decision to share his Holocaust story.
