    Videotape testimony of Jacqueline E., who was born in Paris in 1915. She describes growing up in a middle class family, stressing the absence of antisemitism before the war; moving with her parents to Vichy after the outbreak of war; the French army's surrender and the entrance of the Germans into Vichy; and her marriage in 1940 and move with her husband to the south of France in 1941. She recounts helping foreign Jews to smuggle across the Spanish border; the Italian occupation in 1942; her and her husband's move to a town near the Italian border, where they obtained false papers; and her return to Paris with her husband and child. She discusses her husband's increasing involvement with the Paris underground; the birth of her second child; witnessing transports of Jews; and the continuous struggle to find enough food to survive. Mrs. E. also remembers D-Day and the arrival of American soldiers in Paris, and she relates her postwar emigration to Canada.
