Videotape testimony of Chana B., who was born in Chop, Czechoslovakia (presently Ukraine), in 1931. She tells how her family and other Jews were affected by the Hungarian occupation in 1938 and, using the Jewish holidays to define her chronology, she vividly recalls her experiences of the German occupation. She also recalls her deportation, with her family to the Uz︠h︡horod (Ungvár) ghetto, where she was separated from her father, and her deportation to Auschwitz, where she was separated from her mother but managed to be "adopted" by a cousin, the first of many older women who cared for her during the war. She also describes her experiences in the children's block in Auschwitz; in a children's transport from Auschwitz to Horneburg, where she worked making light bulbs for submarines; being marched or transported from place to place as the war drew to a close; and her liberation at Salzwedel.
