    Videotape testimony of Agnes B., a Romani, one of nine children. She recalls her brother's deportation from Königsberg (Kaliningrad) in 1938; being sent with her husband and many family members to Hohenbruch; forced labor; a severe beating after attempting to escape; relatives and friends being beaten to death; liberation by Soviet troops; her child's birth; learning her husband had been sterilized after her child was conceived; and moving to Berlin, Schwerin, Celle, and then Munich. Mrs. B. notes she could not endure those conditions again (she would kill herself rather than try to survive) and ends her testimony because her memories are too painful for her to continue. Gertrud B. appears briefly.
