    Videotape testimony of Rosie L., who was born in Poland in 1933. She recalls growing up in Brussels; their secularism; antisemitic harassment; German invasion; their flight to Lille, then a town in the Pyrenees; her father's military draft; France's surrender; her father's demobilization; returning to Brussels in August 1940 via Toulouse and Paris; antisemitic regulations; her sister's conscription for labor; being hidden with her brother on a farm; her mother retrieving them; seeing Germans near her house and assuming her parents had been taken; being sent to a Resistance member; his inability to find a hiding place; reunion with her mother (her parents and brother had not been taken); her mother placing her with her brother in a convent orphanage; her mother observing poor food and sanitation during a visit; placing them in an orphanage in Belœil; her conversion to Catholicism; liberation; reunion with her parents; learning her sister had been deported to Auschwitz; and their emigration to the United States in 1951. Mrs. L. discusses her hope that her sister's existence be remembered; her profound grief over her sister and all the murdered children; and her loss of belief in God and her brother's increased religiosity due to their experiences.
