    Videotape testimony of Malka G., who was born in Poland in 1929 and lived in Bʺedzin. She recalls fleeing the German invasion; returning to Będzin after a few days; burning of the synagogue; Jews from surrounding communities being assembled in Będzin for deportation; the Jewish Committee assigning her to forced labor; and transfer to Sosnowiec in 1942, then to a woolen goods factory in Grünberg. Mrs. G. recounts beatings, killings, selections and receiving food from non-Jews; a death march in January 1945 to Christianstadt, then Helmbrechts; Germans shooting those who attempted escape or those who could no longer walk; and liberation from the death march. She remembers recuperating in Czechoslovakia; traveling to Italy with the Jewish Brigade; and emigrating to Israel in 1948, then later to the United States. Mrs. G. describes an uncle who saved her brother and the deaths of her father and others.
