    Videotape testimony of Marta R., who was born in a small town in Moravia in 1921. Mrs. R. describes her happy childhood; her gradual awareness of antisemitism; the German occupation; her education and work as a teacher; her marriage; and her and her husband's deportation to Terezín in December, 1942. She tells of daily life in Terezín; her transport, with her husband, to Auschwitz, where they were immediately separated (she never saw him again); her transfer after two weeks to Birnbäumel, a labor camp in a small village; the death march to Gross Rosen, from where she was taken by train to Bergen-Belsen; and her liberation there. Postwar topics include her recovery in Sweden; work in a Jewish orphanage in Prague; emigration to Israel; and her continuing work with children.
