    Videotape testimony of Dana S., who was born in Lʹviv, Ukraine (then Poland) in 1935. She recalls having a governess (her parents were both lawyers); the beginning of war; Soviet occupation; her father hiding from military draft; his eventual draft and return home; German invasion; ghettoization; hiding during round-ups; her mother hiding her with a Christian former neighbor; their returning her after a week; her father obtaining false papers for her and her mother (as a male, he thought he would jeopardize them); seeing her father for the last time; going by train to Zaklików; living as Catholics; and learning of hidden Jews nearby who were reported and killed. Ms. S. discusses several incidents of almost being found out; her self-confidence resulting from her war experiences; believing that being Jewish was bad, but attaining pride in her Jewishness after some time; and a scar on her finger which reminds her of her father.
