Videotape testimony of Inge M., who was born in Vienna, Austria in 1933. She recalls moving to Brussels in 1939; German occupation; a humiliating antisemitic incident in school; her father's deportation (she never saw him again); a teacher arranging to hide her and her sister in a convent; Catholic baptism with her sister; transfer to a convent in the country; living briefly with a priest and his housekeeper; reunion with her mother after the war (her mother hid in Brussels); placement in a Jewish children's home in Antwerp due to her mother's financial straits; emigrating to Israel in 1949 with her mother and sister; marriage; and the births of two children. Mrs. M. discusses her childhood belief in Catholicism; her lost childhood and youth; her reluctance to share her experience with her husband and children until recently; and her belief in the need to increase awareness of antisemitism.
