    Videotape testimony of Sally C., who was born in Radom, Poland in 1928, the youngest of eight children. She recalls German invasion; her mother persuading her to volunteer for forced labor to avoid deportations; learning some siblings were deported; transfer with two sisters to Ostrowiec, then to Auschwitz, a year later, in June 1944; male prisoners whom they knew throwing them food; transfer six months later to Gebhardsdorf; a death march to Georgenthal; escape and recapture; liberation; returning to Poland seeking relatives; traveling to Czechoslovakia upon finding no one, then to Dachau upon learning their brother was there; and her emigration to the United States in 1947. Ms. C. discusses teaching herself English; earning her college degree; visiting her sister in Israel in 1953; speaking in schools about her experiences; and her children's pride in her giving testimony.
