    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Magdolna B., who was born in 1924 in Újpest, Hungary, a Budapest suburb. She remembers close relations with her large, extended family; her father's position as a veterinarian for the health department in Budapest; believing events in Poland and Germany "would not happen to us too"; German occupation in March 1944; leaving her parents in Budapest to join her fiance in the country; his arrest; and her return home. Mrs. B. recalls anti-Jewish measures; forced labor; escape from the factory to her home with the aid of her uncle's Christian friend; acquiring false papers in summer 1944; hiding in an apartment with her mother; liberation by Soviet troops; reunion with her father; and learning of her fiance's death. She describes postwar difficulties; nurse's training at the Budapest Jewish Hospital; marriage; her son's birth; her husband's emigration during the Hungarian revolution; raising his son and her own by herself; emigrating to the United States in 1966 with her stepson; her divorce; and her son's emigration to the United States after seven years. Mrs. B. discusses learning of massacres of Jews in Budapest and sharing her experiences with her children.
