    Videotape testimony of Chana F., who was born in a town near Łódź, Poland, and her husband Henry F., who was born in Łódź in 1911. They describe the ghettoization of Łódź; conditions in the ghetto including forced labor, overcrowding, beatings, starvation, public executions, and infanticide; and the psychological numbing they experienced from living under such conditions. Mrs. F. tells of the liquidation of the ghetto and her deportation to Auschwitz, where she was selected for work in an ammunition factory; her transport to Ravensbrück, then to Mühlhausen and, six months later, to Belsen; and her liberation by the British in April, 1945. Mr. F. relates his evacuation from the ghetto and deportation to the slave labor camp in Königs Wusterhausen, Germany; the death march to Sachsenhausen/Oranienburg; and the liberation of the camp by the Americans in May, 1945. Mr. and Mrs. F. also speak of how they first met in Sweden after the war and of their postwar life together in the United States.
