    Videotape testimony of Barbara Z., who was born in Berlin, Germany in 1921, an only child. She recalls her father was not Jewish; her parents were both dentists; their divorce when she was twelve; her maternal grandfather living with them; her mother's Danish friend urging her mother to send her to Denmark due to Hitler's ascent to power; arrival in Copenhagen in 1936; attending a Catholic school; her mother's arrival a year later (her grandfather had died); their sham marriages so they could remain; German invasion; non-Jews arranging their transport in a small fishing boat to Sweden (the fisherman was later killed for his activities); living with a cousin in Stockholm, then on their own; being returned to Denmark after the war; and their emigration to the United States in 1946. Ms. Z. notes her mother's sister and her husband were deported and killed; returning to Germany with her children sixteen years ago at the invitation of the German government, and hearing antisemitic remarks there.
