Videotape testimony of Fran L., who was born in Chrzanów, Poland in 1924. In addition to information in a previously recorded testimony (HVT-675), Ms. L. recalls receiving food from her family's former maid who was a Polish civilian worker at Neusalz; transfer from Gross-Rosen to Flossenbürg, then Bergen-Belsen; meeting her husband through his uncle, an official at the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp; friendship with Hadassah and Joseph Rosensaft; and living in Celle after she was married. She discusses her continuing belief in God and commitment to orthodoxy; traveling to Poland with her children fifteen years ago; and plans for a similar trip with her grandchildren soon. She shows photographs and documents.
