Videotape testimony of Libby G., who was born in Prilesnoye (Manevichi), Ukraine, in 1933, and her husband, Sidney G., who was born in Chrzanów, Poland, in 1927. Mrs. G. tells of the Russian and German occupations; her and her sister's flight into the woods prior to the town's ghettoization; and hiding with a family friend before joining the partisans. Mr. G. describes his childhood and religious upbringing; the German occupation; six months of forced labor in Langenbielau in 1939, after which he was sent home due to an injury; deportation to Gross-Rosen in 1943; the death march to Dachau and his experiences there; his liberation by the Americans; and his virtual adoption by an American G.I. Both speak of their meeting in a displaced persons camp; emigration to the United States; their children; and their differing attitudes towards relating their experiences.
