Videotape testimony of Renée G., who was born in Łosice, Poland, in 1932. She describes the German occupation of Łosice, its ghettoization, and the liquidation of the ghetto; her arrest along with her older brother; and their transfer to the "small ghetto", where she worked as a forced laborer. She also describes her escape from the ghetto with the assistance of a non-Jewish friend of her father; and life in hiding, first in the home of the Polish policeman who had arrested her and her brother, and later in the barn of a Polish farm family. Here, she and her family hid in a pit under a manure pile for two years. Other topics include liberation; her post-liberation return to Losice; and a recent return trip to Poland, which greatly affected her.
