Oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Arthur Salcman. Salcman was born in Posa, Czechoslovakia, in 1911. When the Sudetenland was annexed in 1938, he was in Plzen working as an engineer at the Skoda Works. He left Plzen and went to Michalovce in Slovakia, where he was a member of a partisan resistance group. Salcman had two close encounters with the Germans but managed to escape both times. He immigrated to the United States in 1949 and worked for the American Machine and Foundry Company. In this interview, he also describes his childhood and family life before the war. His wife, Lilly Salcman, also a Holocaust survivor, is present during this interview and frequently comments. Salcman died in September 2010.
