Description: An interview with Marvin Kozlowski, a Holocaust survivor, conducted by Dr. Sidney Bolkosky, Professor of History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Marvin Kozlowski was born in Radom, Poland in 1920. Following the German invasion of Poland, Mr. Kozlowski and his family were placed in the Radom Ghetto, where Mr. Kozlowski worked as a forced laborer for Daimler-Benz. While in the ghetto, Mr. Kozlowski's mother and three siblings were deported to the Treblinka death camp. Following the liquidation of the ghetto in 1944, Mr. Kozlowski, along with his father, were marched to Tomaszów where they were put on a train and shipped to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon arrival there, they were immediately sent to an unidentified labor camp in Western Germany. After a brief time, they were sent to Unterriexingen, a labor sub-kommando of Natzweiler Concentration Camp. After one month, the camp was liquidated and Marvin and his father were liberated near Osterburken, Germany, while en-route to an unknown destination.
