    Videotape testimony of Lepa M., a non-Jew who was born in Belgrade, Serbia in 1914. She describes the political atmosphere and situation of the Jews in Belgrade before the war; her marriage in 1935; the German invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941; and the anti-Jewish legislation and mass deportations which followed. She relates that in 1943 she and her husband hid five Jews in the basement of their house in Prokuplje, and that several months later they were discovered, and, along with Mrs. M.'s husband, were taken away and shot by the Gestapo in Niš. Mrs. M. speaks of her life in Belgrade after the war and of the circumstances of the Jews there, and she tells of moving to England and then to the United States. Throughout the testimony she returns to a description of events surrounding her husband's arrest, and discusses her feelings and observations regarding the plight of the Jews during and after the Holocaust.
