    Videotape testimony of Catina P., who was born in Chios, Greece in 1922, one of four sisters. She recounts her father's death when she was four; moving to Athens; speaking Ladino at home; attending a Jewish school; cordial relations with non-Jews; benign Italian occupation; German invasion; defying an order for Jews to assemble at the synagogue in 1943; her family hiding separately with non-Jewish friends; visiting her mother and sisters; moving a few times, fearing exposure; observing Jewish deportations from afar; marriage in 1954; and emigration to Brussels. Ms. P. discusses the families who hid her, despite the risk; many Greeks who helped Jews; feeling like a “homeless dog” while in hiding; and her children emigrating to Israel.
