    Videotape testimony of Gloria L., who was born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1925. She recalls living in Gerresheim; their affluent lifestyle; being over-protected as an only child; cordial relations with non-Jews until 1933; her father's arrest; his release due to friendship with one of the policemen; moving to Düsseldorf in 1937, thinking it would be safer; membership in Habonim; attempts to emigrate to the United States; attending a Jewish school; and their emigration to the United States in September 1938. Mrs. L. discusses their strong German identity (her father was a World War I hero); their inability to imagine Germans killing Jews; the importance of not persecuting any minority; visiting her hometown in 1980; and her children's lack of interest but her son-in-law's interest in her past.
