    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Celina S., who was born into a large Jewish family in Kraków, Poland. Mrs. S. describes the active Jewish community in Kraków; spending summers in the town of Oswiecim (Auschwitz); the outbreak of the war; and the Bochnia ghetto, where she worked as a cleaning woman for the Lagerfuḧrer. She relates her escape from the ghetto, aided by non-Jews; her arrest while attempting to cross the border from Slovakia into Hungary; her imprisonment in Košice, where she was registered as a non-Jew; her release from Košice, after which she attempted to escape to Romania and was jailed in Budapest; and her escape, in 1944, to Palestine. Mrs. S. also speaks of the atrocities which she witnessed; her postwar career as a chemical engineer; her marriage and children; and her feelings concerning differences between sabras and survivors.
