    Videotape testimony of Evgenia L., who was born in Bar, Ukraine in 1921. She recalls moving often when her father was transferred (he was a teacher); many deaths during famine years; returning to Bar in 1935; attending teachers' college in Vinnyt︠s︡i︠a︡; teaching in Kopaygorod; marriage; returning to Bar when Germany invaded (she never saw her husband again); ghettoization; forced labor; selection with other younger people, including her sister, during a round-up; hearing shots all night long; learning her father had survived; escaping from another mass killing with help from her father's former non-Jewish student; several non-Jews assisting them; hiding in a forest; traveling to Luka-Barskaya; several non-Jews helping them; fending off a drunkard who attacked her sister; hiding with other Jews in Litin; dreaming about her mother; moving to Kopaygorod, then Luchinets; brief detention by Romanians; traveling to Sharhorod, Tomashpolʹ, and Dzhurin; liberation by Soviet troops; return to Bar; reunion with a brother; and remarriage. Ms. L. discusses not wanting to forget her pervasive, painful memories which have prevented her from enjoying life; many Jews and non-Jews who helped her and others who did not; and attributing her survival to God.
