Videotape testimony of Eva, who was born in Budapest, Hungary. She describes feeling both Hungarian and Jewish before the outbreak of war; imposition of anti-Jewish measures; living in a house designated for Jews; hiding under false papers in Budapest during a round-up; working at a munitions factory; arrest during a round-up in November 1944; deportation to Ravensbrück; working at the factory; witnessing a childbirth and the Germans killing the mother and her baby; liberation by United States troops; her emotional reunion with her parents in Budapest (they did not know she had survived); marriage in 1948; and emigration with her husband to Austria, then to Argentina. Eva discusses her regret that she could not have children; her perception of her parents' inability to save her; and her personal meaning of survival.
