Eva S. Holocaust testimony (HVT-29) interviewed by Laurel Vlock

Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-29

Videotape testimony of Eva S., who was born in Berlin in 1922. She describes her childhood and youth in Nazi Germany, including particularly vivid memories of the day Hitler came to power, Kristallnacht, and her brother's bar mitzvah, which took place in the chapel of a Jewish old age home because all the synagogues had been destroyed. She also discusses her journey to England with a children's transport in 1939 and her life in England, where she remained for several years. She speaks of her sense of Jewishness, which she acquired in school rather than in her non-observant home, and of the lasting effects of her wartime experiences.
