Videotape testimony of Judy F., who was born in Czechoslovakia in 1929. She describes her childhood in a small, Hungarian-speaking town; the gathering of the town's Jews in a synagogue in April 1944; and her transport, with family members, to Auschwitz in a cattle car. She recalls conditions at Auschwitz; being taken to Birkenau, where she worked in the Canada kommando, sorting belongings; the camp's evacuation and liberation by Russians; and her emaciated condition upon liberation. She remembers returning to Budapest to search for her father; meeting her present husband and his sister; her year-long stay at an American-supported displaced persons camp in Germany; her move in 1947 to Stuttgart; and her arrival in the United States. She relates her postwar problems; her belief in God; and thoughts on telling her story to her children.
