Videotape testimony of Frieda J., who was born in Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland, in 1937. She relates her early childhood memories of the Nazi entry into her town; hiding in a closet with a false back; and an assembly of people who were about to be deported. She recalls the public hanging of her father in the small town of Lututov; the deportation of her mother and brother to Treblinka; her own return to Pietrokow; and her frequent relocations under the care of several different extended family members. She recounts her experiences in Ravensbrück; her transport to Bergen-Belsen with other children; life in the camp; her chance postwar reunion with her aunt and uncle; and life with them in Brussels.
