    Videotape testimony of Marika B., who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1934. She recounts summer vacations in her grandmother's Czech village; attending public school; cordial relations with non-Jews; anti-Jewish restrictions beginning in 1938; her half-sister's emigration to the United States (her father was previously married); German invasion in March 1944; eviction from their home; trading apartments with an Italian man; her parents hiding her with a non-Jewish man; learning he was her father's illegitimate son; his returning her to her parents, fearing he would be exposed; placement in a convent; baptism and confirmation; becoming a religious Catholic; returning home in December; hiding with her family and many other Jews in her father's office; liberation by Soviet troops; returning to their home (the Italian man safeguarded their possessions); and emigration to the United States in 1956, joining her half-sister.
