    Videotape testimony of Dorothy L., who was born in Bremen, Germany in 1923. Mrs. L. recalls her close family; moving to Budapest; their happy life in a milieu of high culture; returning to Bremen in 1933; the forced sale of the family home; a German friend who helped them a great deal; her emigration to the United States on a children's transport in September 1938; and emotional difficulties living with families who seemed cold to her. She notes her brother and sister emigrated to England and learning from them about the trauma of Kristallnacht and her parents' and older sister's deportation and deaths. Mrs. L. shows family photographs, documents, and the prayer book her father had given her.
