    Videotape testimony of Margita D., a Catholic Romani, who was born in Pusté, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1931, one of four children. She recalls her family's poverty; the family working for a woodsman and cleaning roads; her job as a housekeeper for their landlord; persecution and harassment by Hlinka guards; Germans burning their village; a Slovak soldier helping them to hide in a stream; villagers hiding them in their cellars; Germans rounding up those who assisted the partisans; her family bringing them food before they were killed by the Germans; helping to bury them; later disinterring the bodies to help document the event, then reburying them in a mass grave with a memorial; liberation by Soviet troops; and the Soviets providing them with food and building houses for them.
