Description:
Abstract Videotape testimony of Isaac F., who was born in Cie?z?kowice, Poland in 1892. He recalls growing up in a religious family; fleeing to Germany to escape military service; working in a shoe store in Berlin; serving in the German army during World War I; marriage in Cologne after the war; the birth of his two sons; recognizing the danger as the Nazis came to power and emigrating to Holland in 1933; establishing a leather business in Zaandam; German invasion in 1940; unsuccessful attempts to emigrate; obtaining Palestine visas; deportation with his family to Westerbork; cleaning streets; and weekly deportations to the east. Mr. F. recounts deportation with his family to Bergen-Belsen; working in the area where luggage was taken from the arriving prisoners; his wife's visits from the women's camp when she gave him her bread to bring to their sons; evacuation by train in 1945; self-liberation when the guards "disappeared" in Tro?bitz; returning with his family to Holland; and emigration to the United States in 1949. Mr. F. tells several anecdotes of prewar life.
