    Videotape testimony of Marianne D., who was born in Berlin, Germany in 1931. She recalls that her father was a blind musician; anti-Jewish regulations; Kristallnacht; being stoned by Hitler Youth in 1941; deportations of friends in 1941 and 1942; expulsion from school; her parents' forced labor; legal restrictions against Jews entering shelters during Allied bombings; her sister losing a leg in a bombing raid; her mother's determination to keep the family together; hiding during 1942 and 1943 in Berlin, then with friends in the country; and liberation in 1945 by Soviet troops. Mrs. D. recounts working for the railroad and an orphanage; her parents' participation in an organization for blind Jews; moving to the western sector of Berlin; meeting her future husband; her parents and sister emigrating to the United States; and her emigration to England in 1950 and later to the United States.
