    Videotape testimony of Alice R., who was born in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1922. She recalls active participation in Hashomer Hatzair and a Jewish swim club; attending a German language gymnasium; expulsion due to antisemitism; deciding to emigrate to Israel with her youth group; her mother accompanying her and the group to Prague; her mother leaving since the border was to be closed when Slovakia was formed (she never saw her, her father, or younger sister again); traveling through Germany to debark from Marseille; attending an agricultural girls school, working, then attending music school; marriage in 1947; returning to Czechoslovakia to see her surviving relatives; not being able to leave for three years because she had used her old Czech passport which was invalidated by the communist regime; living in Rome; the births of two daughters; and emigrating to the United States in 1960. Ms. R. discusses reunions of the swim club starting twenty years ago.
