Videotape testimony of Annie C., who was born in England. She married a Frenchman in 1915 and moved to France with her husband and two-year-old child after World War I. She describes her pleasant prewar life in France, her daughter's flight from France before the German occupation, and the German occupation. She speaks of her unsuccessful attempts to leave France after the German occupation; her and her husband's flight; hiding with the help of her husband's non-Jewish relatives and French civilians; and using false papers. She stresses the continual fear of discovery and betrayal. She tells of her emigration to the United States after the war and her reunion with her daughter. She also expresses her present ambivalence toward Germans. Annie C.'s granddaughter, Jackie B., who is present during the interview, relates her memories of her grandparents when they lived with her after their emigration to the United States and speaks of her own feelings about the experiences of her mother and grandparents.
