    Videotape testimony of Rose L., who was born in a small town in Poland in 1910. She describes growing up in an affluent family; studying with private tutors; marriage to a wealthy businessman; establishing their home in Tluste (presently Tovste); her daughter's birth; Soviet occupation; persecution as business owners, including loss of their house; her parents moving to Ozeri︠a︡ny to avoid her father being arrested; German invasion; ghettoization; mass killings; joining her parents in Ozeri︠a︡ny with her daughter; returning to Tluste with her daughter after learning that her husband was deported; her parents joining her in the Tluste ghetto; fieldwork outside the ghetto; arranging her husband's escape from Janowska with assistance from a Ukrainian doctor and her husband's niece; escaping from the ghetto with her husband and daughter; hiding in a cave for ten months with assistance from a Ukrainian; and liberation by Soviet troops in March 1944. Mrs. L. recounts her initial fear her daughter would hate, and learning no family members had survived. She emphasizes the risks taken by the man who hid them and his kindness to them.
