    Videotape testimony of Jolana R., a Romani, who was born in Roštár, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1928, the eldest child. She recounts not being able to attend school because she had to cook and care for younger siblings starting at age eight; her mother refusing to give her food resulting in her having to beg; working with builders from age nine; a German soldier dying from a gunshot near her home; having to billet seven or eight Romanian soldiers in their house; pervasive fear during the war; marriage at age seventeen to escape her mother's abuse; her husband's abuse; building her own house; and giving her children a better childhood than she had.
