    Videotape testimony of Susan M., who was raised in Budapest, Hungary. She recalls her paternal grandmother with whom she associates Jewish holidays and traditions; anti-Jewish measures when she was five years old; her father's compulsory service in a Hungarian labor battalion; German invasion; moving into the ghetto in March 1944; separation from her mother during round-ups; her mother's escape from a brick factory and bribing a Hungarian to bring her to a Swedish safe house; living there with her mother; avoiding deportation with assistance from resistants; pervasive fear and hunger; and liberation by Soviet troops on January 18, 1944. Mrs. M. discusses her mother's attempt to protect her through conversion to Christianity; playing with other children in the ghetto and safe house; current nightmares about her father's last visit and her grandmother's death; and sharing memories with her children. She shows photographs and documents.
