    Videotape testimony of Sonia M., who was born in Dolginovo, Poland, near Vilna. Mrs. M. describes working in a labor camp near her town after the war's outbreak; the slaughter of one thousand people in her town in 1942; and a second massacre, in which her mother was killed. She recalls life in the town's ghetto; her and her father's escape; and their joining partisans hiding in the woods. She recounts scouting enemy movements for the partisans; liberation in 1944 by the Russians; and her return home, where she found only one surviving sibling of four. Mrs. M. relates her psychosomatic responses to fear during her years in hiding; her three years in displaced persons camps; her marriage in 1947; her emigration to the United States in 1949; and her postwar life.
