    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Sarah G., who was born in Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland in 1920. She recounts her parents' former marriages (they each had four children); working in their summer restaurant in Ciechocinek; German invasion; returning to Piotrków; ghettoization; forced labor; deportations including her family; transfer to Difi in Bugaj; slave labor; transfer to Ravensbrück, then Bergen-Belsen, after about eight months; liberation by British troops; reunion with a half-brother and sister; living in Landsberg displaced persons camp; marriage; a daughter's birth; emigration to Israel (her siblings went to the United States after she left); the births of two more daughters; and emigration to the United States in 1956. Ms. G. discusses thinking only of herself, surviving the day, and not believing she would survive in concentration camps; waking up next to corpses in Bergen-Belsen; and not knowing how she survived such conditions. She shows photographs.
