    Videotape testimony of Renate K., a non-Jew, who was born in Stargard in Pommern, Germany (Stargard Szczeciński, Poland after 1945) in 1922. She recalls the important contributions of Jews to the community; cordial relations with the local Jews; her father helping a fellow Jewish physician emigrate in 1935; Gestapo threats against her father for his efforts on behalf of Jews and other victims of the Gestapo; and his succesful efforts to hide another Jewish family and arrange for the escape of their child to South America. Mrs. K. recalls replacement of local officials by Nazis; her marriage; her child's delivery by a Jewish obstetrician; and her father writing a medical excuse for an officer not to return to Latvia where his unit had refused orders to shoot Jews. She notes the death of her father, mother, brother and husband during the war and discusses her wish for people to know that there were Germans who risked their lives to help Jews.
