Videotape testimony of Frieda J., who was born in Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland, in 1937.

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.
