    Videotape testimony of Anna G., who was born in Varkovychi, Poland (presently Ukraine) in 1924. She recalls her parents' Zionism; attending a Jewish gymnasium in Dubrovno in 1939; Soviet occupation; German invasion in June 1941; her father's flight, thinking only men would be targeted; ghettoization; slave labor; a survivor of Babi Yar sharing her story; learning her father had been killed; her mother arranging for her to hide with Czech non-Jews; obtaining false papers; her rescuer hiding her mother, brother, cousins, and others in a bunker when their town was liquidated; her mother and brother leaving to seek a safer place (she never saw them again); arrest with a cousin; escape (her cousin was killed); hiding in several places; returning to her first rescuer; her rescuer placing her in a bunker with nine others, including her future husband; liberation by Soviet troops eighteen months later; marriage; moving to Kraków, then Vienna; assistance from HIAS; her daughter's birth; and emigration to the United States. Ms. G. discusses continuing pain at the loss of her mother; not sharing her memories; writing a book about her husband's experiences in 1988; subsequently sharing her experiences with her children and others; and her desire to return to where her mother was killed. She expresses gratitude to those who saved her and shows photographs.
