    Videotape testimony of Juliana R., who was born in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia (presently Serbia) in approximately 1927. She speaks of the death of her sister in 1940, due to an accident unrelated to the war, which still affects her deeply. She relates the antisemitic activities under the Hungarian occupation beginning in 1941 and the confusion, fear, and helplessness of the Jews during that time; her family's deportation to Auschwitz in 1944, where she was separated from her parents immediately upon arrival; the dehumanizing life in Auschwitz; and her transfer to a slave labor camp in Wüstergiersdorf near Breslau, where she worked in a factory making hand grenades. Mrs. R. describes a reunion with her husband-to-be in this camp; her liberation by the Russians, who also mistreated the former prisoners; and her postwar reunion with her husband-to-be. Other topics include the effects of her wartime experience, among them lack of trust and hatred of gentiles; and her gratitude for her husband, children, and grandchildren.
