In regards to HKP in Vilna, an additional information source is a testimony given by Sidney Handler. Sidney was born and raised in Vilna and with his mother, the only survivors of his family, were interned at HKP. Sidneys testimony delves into life in Vilna, his experiences at HKP, and ultimately, his liberation and relocation to Germany and the U.S. I interviewed him around 20 years ago, when the Vital Records Translation Project was in its infancy. He lived here in Newton, MA. at the time. I believe he is about 87 years old now.
 
One source of his testimony can be found at:
 
Sid Handler was born In Vilnius, Lithuania in 1934 (at the time it was part of Poland and he was born with Polish citizenship) as Samuel Rezjewski.
