Videotape testimony of Ruth K., who was born in Niedermendig, Germany in 1935. She recalls hearing of her father's arrest on Kristallnacht; his internment in Dachau where he suffered a heart attack; his release; her mother selling the family jewelry to finance their departure from Germany in 1939; traveling through Portugal to Brazil; and their emigration to the United States two years later. Mrs. K. discusses what happened to members of her extended family; a memorial in Niedermending dedicated to her family; and her father never talking about Dachau.
