    Videotape testimony of Louise S., who was born in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 1929. She recalls a large extended family; anti-Jewish restrictions; moving to Amsterdam in 1942 due to frequent raids in Rotterdam; her parents hiding their valuables; visits from non-Jewish friends; hiding during raids; being placed in hiding with a distant, non-Jewish relative in Hilversum; transfer when it became too dangerous; a visit from her parents; joining her parents in hiding in Haarlem for five months; obtaining false papers from the underground; their move to Apeldoorn; staying in the same room for twenty months; liberation by Canadian troops; reunion with her sister (she had hidden elsewhere); learning of the deaths of many relatives; marriage to a Canadian; and their emigration to Canada in 1959. Ms. S. discusses creating her own inner life in hiding; admiration for the underground man who helped them; and not talking to her sons very much about her experiences. She shows documents.
