    Videotape testimony of Georgia G., who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930, the only child of a prominent attorney. She recalls not realizing the danger of the war until the early 1940s when a cousin was drafted into a Hungarian slave labor battalion; being warned of the German invasion in March 1944 by a non-Jewish friend; anti-Jewish restrictions; non-Jewish friends supplying her family with food; her father's round-up (she never saw him again); obtaining false papers with assistance from a soldier; her mother's arrest; obtaining her release with assistance from a non-Jewish client of her father; arrest en route to get her mother; witnessing the torture, mutilation, and murder of Jews; and escaping. Ms. G. notes she and a cousin are the sole survivors of a large extended family; escaping three times; earning a graduate degree at U.C.L.A.; writing a book about her experiences, despite reliving painful memories in the process; and her belief that protest against human rights violations is the only remedy.
