    Videotape testimony of Friedel M., who was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany in approximately 1921. She recounts her family's orthodoxy; being raised by their maid; her father's death when she was six; spending Jewish holidays with grandparents in Bierstadt; attending a Jewish school; her mother's remarriage in 1933; antisemitic harassment, restrictions, and boycotts; fearing arrest during her brother's bar mitzvah in 1935, since gatherings were prohibited; his emigration to the United States to join her mother's sister; obtaining U.S. visas in Stuttgart; emigration with her mother and stepfather in 1937; her stepfather's death in 1956; and her mother's remarriage. Ms. M. discusses pervasive fear after Hitler seized power; visiting Germany twice in the 1980s; and sharing her experiences with her children.
