    Videotape testimony of Hannelore H., who was born in Berlin, Germany in 1925. She recounts her father was Lutheran; her mother's baptism as a child (both her parents were Jewish); Jewish children being expelled from her school; not returning a school form on which she had to document her “Aryan” ancestry; her twin brother having to repeat a grade due to anti-Jewish laws; her widowed maternal grandmother living with them; her grandmother's strong sense of German identity (her only son was killed in World War I, and her family had been there for generations); her grandmother's deportation; receiving one letter from her from Theresienstadt (they never saw her again); being taken to Rosenstrasse with her mother; hearing the protesters outside; their release the next day; her father losing his bank director's position; she, her brothers, and her father being sent to different work camps; returning home when Berlin was bombed; arrival of Soviet troops; her father's arrest by the Soviets (they never saw him again); her brothers' return; studying in the United States; marriage to an American; and emigration to the United States. Ms. H. discusses belonging to a church, but recently “accepting her Jewish part,” despite antisemitism in the United States.
