    Videotape testimony of Marian N., who was born in ś-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands in 1938. She has no memory of her German Jewish parents who placed her with a non-Jewish business associate in Geldrop before they hid in 1941. Mrs. N. recalls being moved to the Martins family in Horst, where she posed as a cousin from the city; playing with her "brothers," the Martins' two children; participating in church services and holiday celebrations; attending a convent school; bombings; German soldiers quartered in their home; and receiving candy from Canadian troops who liberated the area. She recounts meeting an uncle who was in the United States military; emigration to the United States in 1946; distress at leaving the Martins; adjustment difficulties in her adoptive family (another uncle); and a pleasurable visit to the Martins in 1959. Mrs. N. discusses her strong affinity for Catholicism; her poor relationship with her adoptive family; the late development of her Jewish consciousness; long believing she had not suffered enough to have an interesting story; and finally telling her story for the sake of her children. She shows documents detailing her parents deportation from Westerbork to Sobibor.
