    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Simone G., who was born in Włocławek, Poland in 1931. She recounts vague memories of her parents and older brother; going to live with an aunt in Paris in 1936 (she never saw her family again); German invasion; her uncle's draft into the French military; his return; her aunt arranging to send her to an orphanage; learning her uncle had been deported; living with a family in central France, posing as a non-Jew; reunion with her aunt and uncle after liberation; living in Septeuil; returning to Paris; their emigration to the United States in 1957; marriage; and her children's births. Mrs. G. discusses her constant fear during the war of being exposed as a Jew; the separation from her parents resulting in her being a perfectionist and always wanting to belong; and her difficult relationship with her aunt.
