    Videotape testimony of Ilse L., who was born in Vienna in 1925. She recalls with fondness her childhood in Vienna; the change in the situation of the Jews beginning in the spring of 1938; being sent to Holland in November, 1938, by her parents, who later perished; her placement in two different foster families; the arrival of her brother in Holland at the end of 1938; and going into hiding in 1942 with the help of a cousin and his non-Jewish girlfriend. She describes living as a Dutch non-Jew by means of false papers; aid from non-Jews, including the Dutch police; and the day to day difficulties that accompanied her underground existence. Mrs. L. also explains that she can appreciate life in the present and no longer feels repercussions of her wartime experience.
