    Videotape testimony of Beba L., who was born in Vilna, Poland in 1925. She recounts her grandfather's partnership in Rom Publishing; attending private school; Soviet occupation; German invasion in June 1941; anti-Jewish restrictions; round-ups of people who never returned; ghettoization in September; being hidden with a non-Jewish family for three months; their priest's efforts to convert her (she did not care, if it led to her survival); visiting the ghetto, not intending to stay; finding her immediate family of seven gone; living with an aunt; receiving food from her former non-Jewish maid; working at Gestapo headquarters; passing information to the underground; transfer to Kaiserwald in September 1943; slave labor digging trenches and in a factory; and transfer to Toruń, then Stutthof. Ms. L. discusses relations between ethnic groups in camps; sabotage in the factory; prisoners beating a prisoner who worked too fast; and her sense she would not survive.
