    Videotape testimony of Ena L., who was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1934. She tells of her life in Belgrade before and during the war and of her flight to northern Italy with her mother, sister, and other relatives. She explains how her family was able to live openly as Jews in a small village near Vittorio Veneto, aided, as were other Jewish refugees, by the Italian government. She describes her life in Amandola where her family fled after Mussolini's fall and where they remained, "passing" as Catholics, for about two years until just before liberation, when they hid in the mountains. The postwar reunion with her father, who had spent the war in a German POW camp, his Jewish identity protected by his fellow officers, is also related. In her testimony Mrs. L. gives particular attention to the many people, including priests, who helped her and other Jews during the war and notes how they were an inspiration for her conduct in later life.
