    Videotape testimony of Irene G., who was born in Warsaw. She describes Polish antisemitism and anti-Jewish legislation; the German occupation; the arrest and disappearance of her father; and the establishment of and life in the Warsaw ghetto. She relates being smuggled out of the Warsaw ghetto into Lʹvov; her move to Brody, and her departure from there upon its ghettoization; living as a non-Jew with her mother, first in Przemyśl, then in a nearby town; and her sustaining hope that her small cousin would survive. Mrs. G. also tells of her liberation by the Russians; her postwar return home and discovery that all her relatives, including her cousin, had perished; her feelings about her emigration and life in the United States; and the continuing fears which stem from her wartime experiences.
