    Videotape testimony of Hana G., an only child, who was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1926. She recounts German occupation; receiving extra food from non-Jewish friends; eviction from their apartment; deportation to Theresienstadt in December 1943; public hangings; her mother sharing extra food with her and her father; their deportation to Auschwitz in December 1943; remaining with her mother (she never saw her father again); briefly working in a children's barrack; deportation to Stutthof in July 1944; twice being in the infirmary; a death march in January 1945; escaping with her mother; hiding until the Soviets arrived; returning home; hospitalization; marriage to another survivor in 1948; having children despite her continuing weakness; and emigration to the United States via Paris in 1966. Mrs. G. notes photographs are all she has of her father; "feeling she lived in a cemetery" after the war; and her belief that she survived because of coincidences.
