    Videotape testimony of Sarah F., who was born in Koshelevo, Ukraine in 1915 to a family of eight children. She recalls her father's death in 1933; Hungarian occupation; her brother obtaining Hungarian citizenship papers; hiding with assistance from non-Jewish neighbors when Jews were expelled in 1941; German occupation in 1944; anti-Jewish measures; ghettoization with her family in April 1944; their deportation from Khust in May 1944; separation from her mother and grandmother upon arrival at Auschwitz (she never saw them again); forced labor with her sister in Fallersleben from July; transfer to Salzwedel; and liberation by United States troops in April 1945. Mrs. F. describes recovering in a sanatorium staffed by UNRRA and Czechs; reunion with a brother and sister, the only family survivors; returning to Koshelevo; joining her sister in Ústí nad Labem; marriage in December 1945; living in the Bamberg displaced persons camp; a miscarriage; and emigration to the United States in 1949. She discusses her fear that she might not have children; the importance of her three children; and sharing her experiences with them.
