    Videotape testimony of Marguerite M., who was born in France in approximately 1932 to Polish émigrés. She recalls living in Paris; her father's enlistment in 1939; German invasion in 1940; her father's return in October; anti-Jewish restrictions; her father's deportation to Beaune-la-Rolande in May 1941; visiting him there; the local police chief warning them of an imminent round-up in 1942; briefly hiding with Jewish and non-Jewish friends; entrusting valuables to a non-Jewish friend; being smuggled to Limoges in the unoccupied zone; living in Oradour-sur-Vayres, using false papers; attending school; traveling to Paris with a non-Jewish friend to retrieve their valuables for living expenses; returning to Paris after liberation in August 1944; becoming depressed with the realization that most of their relatives, including her father, were killed; emigration to the United States in 1950; and marriage in 1952. Ms. M. discusses the importance of non-Jews to their survival and to her faith in humanity. She notes her father's name in Serge Klarsfeld's book.
