    Videotape testimony of Rasela K., who was born in Skopje, Yugoslavia (presently Macedonia) in 1925. She recalls attending public school; her family being the only Jews in their neighborhood; German, then Bulgarian occupation; anti-Jewish restrictions, including wearing the yellow star; round-up to a tobacco factory (Monopol) on March 11; starvation and lack of sanitation; arrival of Jews from surrounding areas; deportations beginning March 22; the release of Italian and Spanish citizens after twenty days, including her family and other paternal relatives, due to assistance from Spanish and Italian consuls; staying with a Turkish neighbor for three days; remaining inside their home, fearing German soldiers; assistance from neighbors; evacuation to a nearby village during Allied bombings; returning to Skopje; a non-Jewish friend sheltering them; and liberation in October 1944. Ms. K. notes that no one on the Skopje transports survived, including her relatives; the deaths of all her relatives from Thessalonikē; and many non-Jews who helped her family.
