    Videotape testimony of Rozália P., who was born in Zlaté Moravce, Czechoslovakia in 1926. She recalls her family's modest hotel business; friendly relations with non-Jews prior to Hitler; anti-Jewish restrictions; confiscation of their business; deportations, including her two brothers (she never saw them again); deportation, with her parents and sister, to Nováky in June 1942; forced labor; their exemption from deportation; her mother's privileged position in the guards' kitchen; receiving extra food from her mother; liberation by partisans in 1944; joining the uprising in Banská Bystrica; separation from the partisans; hiding in the forest and in a village; traveling to Ružomberok with a partisan; living with a Slovak family using her false papers to obtain legitimate papers; returning to Banská Bystrica; working in a sewing shop; liberation; and reuniting with her sister, then with her parents in Zvolen. Mrs. P. discusses guilt at surviving when most of her friends and relatives did not; nightmares; continuing fears; pervasive memories of humiliation and degradation which she would like to forget but cannot; and her resulting lack of self-esteem.
