    Videotape testimony of Roni B., who was born in 1930 in Berlin, Germany. She recounts antisemitic harassment and restrictions, including her father not being able to treat non-Jews (he was a dentist); some non-Jews sneaking in for treatment; a non-Jewish butcher providing them with meat; changing schools frequently; Kristallnacht; relatives emigrating to several destinations; the war's outbreak; bribing an official to obtain visas; traveling to Paris, Bordeaux, San Sebastián, and Barcelona; emigrating by ship to the United States in August 1941; and receiving letters from relatives via the Red Cross. Ms. B. discusses relatives who remained in Germany; not sharing her story with her children until they were adults; her family receiving restitution; visiting Berlin with her husband and daughter as guests of Berlin; and discomfort when she meets Germans. She shows photographs and documents, and reads family letters.
