    Videotape testimony of Sylvia B., who was born in Velykyĭ Bereznyĭ, Czechoslovakia (presently Ukraine), in 1928. Mrs. B. speaks of her early family life; her Orthodox upbringing; and the absence of prewar Czech antisemitism. She recalls the effects of the Hungarian occupation in 1939, including anti-Jewish regulations and a Jewish census in 1942; and continued Czech benevolence under Hungarian rule. She recounts the German occupation, during which she had to hide; the rumor-filled environment of Passover in 1944; the round-up of the town's Jews in a synagogue; and her deportation with her family to Auschwitz.
