Kathe P. Holocaust testimony (HVT-124) interviewed by Michael Moskowitz and Dori Laub,
Videotape testimony of Kathe P., who was born into a large Orthodox family in Poland in 1909. Mrs. P. remembers growing up in Dortmund, Westphalia; ever-present antisemitism; working for the association of eastern Jews (Ostjudischer Verband) where she met her husband, whom she married in 1933; the boycott against Jewish stores; and violence, plunder, and cruelty by German soldiers. She recounts her attempts to get exit visas for herself and her husband, resulting in their departure for France three days before the mass deportations began; her emigration, with her husband, to Bolivia; and her attempts to secure the emigration of her parents. Mrs. P. also describes her persistent efforts to obtain restitution; her still passionate anger; and her belief in a possible recurrence.
