    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Ann L., who was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1931. She recalls that her father was chief physician of a hospital; a privileged childhood as an affluent Czech; her father's refusal to emigrate due to his strong Czech patriotism; Hitler's arrival in Prague in March 1939; her older brother's emigration to the United States in October; anti-Jewish regulations; expulsion from school after third grade; her father losing his position; and the family's transport to Terezín in July 1943. Mrs. L. recounts her mother's illness; her father working as a physician; contacts with Leo Baeck; stealing from the Germans' gardens; meeting arriving trains in April 1945 to search for acquaintainces; the disappearance of guards when the war ended; and their happy return to Prague, where her father regained his former appointments. She describes how the children found ways to have fun in Terezín, despite the conditions.
