    Videotape testimony of Shari B., who was born in Košice, Slovakia, circa 1928. Mrs. B. describes antisemitism and awareness of her Judaism; the German occupation; her inadequate awareness of the events of the war; being smuggled, with her sisters, out of her town and living with a former Jewish maid; and her and her sister's flight to Bratislava, where they hid for several months and where she met her future husband. She tells of the arrest of her sister; her own arrest and weeklong interrogation; her obsessive fear of dying by German hands; and her transfer to a transit camp in Sered,̕ where she was reunited with her sister and from where they were taken to Theresienstadt. Mrs. B. recounts her humiliation and constant thoughts of suicide; her sustaining relationship with her sister; and her liberation by the Russians. She also discusses her marriage and the effects of her experience on herself and her children.
