Consists of one memoir, 55 pages, entitled "My Story," by Sol Graf (also known as Zoltan Grof or Shlomo Graf), originally of Mosonmagyaróvár, Hungary. He describes pre-war life, the invasion of Hungary, being sent to the Moson ghetto and from there to the ghetto in Gyor. At the beginning of June, he was deported to Auschwitz and describes the selection process and being placed in the children's barrack in the so-called "Gypsy camp." He was transferred to Auschwitz I and later to the Sachsenhausen, Lieberose, and Mauthausen concentration camps. He was liberated from Gunskirchen in May 1945 and describes his post-war hospitalization. He returned to Hungary and reunited with his mother, who had also survived. He illegally emigrated to Palestine in 1946, describes his experiences in the navy during the War of Independence and the sinking of the Altalena in 1949. He remained in the military until 1966, when he emigrated to the United States. The memoir includes copies of photographs.
