She recounts her maternal grandparents' emigration to Palestine in 1933; German invasion; being hidden with a family in Hengelo; her parents' clandestine visits; her mother determining she was being neglected; transfer to another family; attending church (she had not been told she was Jewish); a parade at liberation; her foster parents' fondness for her resulting in their reluctance to return her; returning to her parents; learning she was a Jew; her sister's birth in 1946; attending a Jewish school; participating in Zionist organizations; yearly visits to her mother's sister in England; meeting her husband there; marriage to him in England; the birth of two children; and spending every Passover in Israel, where her sister lives. Ms. C. notes her mother had been caught and deported to Auschwitz; continuing close relations with her foster family; nightmares resulting from her experiences; and her mother's unwillingness to share her story.
