    Videotape testimony of Phyllis S., who was born in Chrzanów, Poland in 1927. She recalls her two sisters and brother; manifestations of antisemitism in the late 1930s; German invasion in 1939; ghettoization; her brother's deportation in 1940; her deportation to Struthof in 1941; forced labor in a textile factory; transfer to Flossenbürg in 1943, then to Bergen-Belsen in February 1945; stealing food to survive; and liberation by British troops. Mrs. S. describes hospitalization for several months; living in Feldafing; learning her brother was alive in Austria; marriage in 1948; her son's birth; and emigration to the United States in 1951, where she was reunited with her brother.
