Videotape testimony of Betty L., who was born in Kozovo, Galicia (presently Ukrainian S.S.R.) in 1910. She describes her orthodox family life; German occupation; collaboration with the Nazis by some local Ukrainians; ghettoization; her mother's death; deportation of her two young children and mother-in-law (she never saw them again); hiding with her husband and other relatives; aid received from Poles and Ukrainians; working for Germans using false papers; and the murders of her father and sister. Mrs. L. tells of liberation by Soviet troops in April 1945; her son's birth in the Landsberg displaced persons camp; emigration to the United States in 1949; her daughter's birth in 1953; her children's careers; discussing her experiences with her children and neighbors; and her continuing financial support of the children of Polish friends who had helped her hide.
