    Videotape testimony of Schifre Z., who was born in Dolhinow, near Vilna, Poland, in 1929. Using vivid and poetic language, and taking care to name the Polish non-Jews who helped her and her family, Mrs. Z. describes her prewar childhood; the German occupation of her town; forced labor; the suffering of her brother at the hands of the Nazis; the liquidation and burning of her town while she hid in a nearby village, and what she saw when she returned; and hiding with her family, first in the attics of the house and barn of sympathetic non-Jews, and later, when this became unsafe, in the forest, where she and her family remained until liberation. She also reflects on the continuing presence of wartime memories, her religious beliefs, and her attitude towards others.
