    Videotape testimony of Toby K., who was born in Vișeu de Sus, Romania in 1922. In addition to information included in a previously recorded testimony (HVT-2856), Ms. K. recounts being hidden from police by non-Jewish friends in 1939; the wedding of the rabbi's son in the Oradea ghetto; never losing hope of survival in camps; praying silently every day in Auschwitz/Birkenau and other camps; assistance from the Swedish Red Cross after liberation; and challenges of living as othodox Jews in Stockholm and Örebro. She discusses the importance of being with her sisters to their survival; continuing to believe that her two brothers may have survived; finding relatives in Israel; not sharing her story with her son until recently; frequent nightmares; particularly painful memories during Jewish holidays; and speaking about her experiences to schools.
