Summary An interview with Michael Weiss, a Holocaust survivor, conducted by Dr. Sidney Bolkosky, Professor of History at the University of Michigan--Dearborn. Michael Weiss was born in Kascony, Czechoslovakia in 1924. Michael recounts his experiences under the Czechoslovakians, Hungarians, and Germans, both before and after the Second World War. In 1944, Michael and his family were relocated form Kascony to the Hungarian ghetto of Beregszász (Berehovo). From Beregszász, Michael and his family were deported to Auschwitz, where his mother was killed by the Germans. From Auschwitz, Michael and his father moved to Buchenwald and then on to Zeitz. Michael was eventually liberated by the American Army, but his father died in Buchenwald.
