At the same utube site as Shoah is at, on the right hand side, are a bunch of testimonials. I just finished watching the complete testimonial of Ernest Lobet.
This is very long, so if you watch it, probably do it in parts. I sat watching through the whole thing and it took about 4 hours. However, don’t be scared off, just do it in sections. There is a Part 1 and a Part 2. Within that are about 10 sections, each broken by a list of one page credits on black background which is how you know you are going into the next section. You can find Part 2 to the right of the screen when all done with Part 1. You’ll figure it out.
This is a walk through the early years of Hitler’s rise, from about 1933 on in Germany, as seen thru the eyes of a holocaust survivor. He discusses his family life in Germany prior to Hitler, and then carries on into the primary part of his life’s story. Ernest’s (Ernst in German) testimony of his time in the concentration camps (primarily Buchenwald) is riveting and frightening. His tales of life in the camps, his stories after escaping from the last camp he was in, his ending up in France, and all the adventures, pathos, narrow escapes, friendships in between, are frankly amazing. I was riveted. If you watch this, you won’t regret it. The period from 1930-1946 in Germany is a history lesson like you can’t imagine, a first person testimony. Have at it:
