    Videotape testimony of Monique B., who was born in Marseille, France in 1929. She describes growing up in an affluent and assimilated family; German invasion; her family's Protestant baptism in Nice to protect themselves; hiding in a village in Lot-et-Garonne; her parents' arrest (she never saw them again); being placed on a farm, unaware of the assistance provided by Jewish organizations to children whose parents had been deported; being placed in a boarding school; her older sister receiving a letter which her parents had thrown from the train which advised them to remain in hiding; returning to Marseille after liberation; reclaiming her family's apartment; working in Paris; emigration to Palestine in 1948; meeting her future husband; returning to France; marriage; her daughter's birth; and emigration to the United States. Mrs. B. discusses hiding her emotions as a result of her experience; distant relations with her siblings; not sharing her experiences with her children until they were older; and losing her belief in God. She shows photographs and documents.
