Martin Dolin's parents immigrated to the United States, but he was born in the United States. His father, Sam (born Samuel Solloway) moved to Waynesboro, Georgia where he opened Dolin's department store. After he died Martin managed it until it closed in the late 1990s. Martin discusses his parents, family, childhood in Waynesboro, the family store, life in small town Georgia, segregation, integration, and the civil rights movement, including the John Birch Society and the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan's activities. Most of the Jewish activities and observances were centered around Temple Children of Israel in Augusta as Waynesboro was too small to have a synagogue. He ran for the city council in Waynesboro and then held the post of major. He stills lives in Waynesboro with his wife, Harriet.
