    Videotape testimony of Sally F., who was born in a small, Polish town in 1921. She recalls that her family moved to Łódź when she was nine months old; German invasion; ghettoization; her father's death of dysentery and starvation in 1942; deportation with her mother to Auschwitz in 1944; her mother's later selection; transfer six weeks later to a camp in Czechoslovakia; abusive treatment by SS women; pervasive hunger; one SS supervisor assisting the prisoners in avoiding return to Auschwitz; a French prisoner sharing food with her; and liberation by Soviet troops in May 1945. Mrs. F. describes returning to Łódź; travelling to Germany with an aunt and uncle; living in Neufreimann refugee camp; marriage in 1946; emigration to the United States in 1949; and three subsequent trips to Poland.
