Videotape testimony of Charlotte K., who was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in 1903. She recalls interest in her brother's books; participation in youth movements; marriage in 1927; the birth of two sons in Germany; emigration to France in 1933; the birth of two more sons; seeing her parents for the last time in 1939; and moving to Limoges in 1940. She recounts her husband's attempts to obtain emigration papers; his arrest by French police and release because his two youngest sons were French; receiving exit papers in August 1941; travel to Madrid and Portugal; receiving assistance from an ORT representative; and the ship journey to New York via Havana. Mrs. K. details the help provided by her husband's relatives, who left Berlin in 1931; her husband's death in 1942; and her injury in an automobile accident resulting in months of separation from her children.
