    Videotape testimony of Regina F., who was born in Strzemieszyce, Poland in 1923, one of eight children. She recalls her orthodox home; attending public school; rising antisemitism in the 1930s; German invasion; arrest of her four brothers one by one (she never saw them again); her mother's death following a beating; ghettoization with her father and three sisters in 1942; deportation to Ludwigsdorf; slave labor in a (munitions) factory; her sisters' arrival from another camp; learning her father was deported (he did not survive); fasting during Yom Kippur; liberation by Soviet troops; living in a German displaced persons camp with her sisters; marriage to a survivor; and emigration to the United States in 1949 with assistance from the Joint. Mrs. F. discusses recounting her experiences to her children; physical ailments resulting from camp life, including poor eyesight from powder burns; frequent nightmares; her profound sense of having lost everything and not being able to recover; and her frustration over inaccurate television programs and movies about the Holocaust.
