    Videotape testimony of Frieda W., who was born in Paris in 1934. She recalls the conflict she experienced as a child between her Jewish and French identities; an early attempt to put her into hiding with other Jewish children; and her constant awareness of her Jewishness, especially in public. She relates her flight with her mother from Paris to a small town; the German bombing and invasion of France; and being sent by her mother to hide in a convent in Switzerland. She describes living as a Catholic in the convent; her declining attachment to the Jewish religion as time went on; her postwar return to Paris, where she learned that her mother had been discovered and deported; and her reunion with her father in Israel. Mrs. W. speaks of postwar responses of survivors in Israel to the Holocaust; the time she spent on a survivors' kibbutz; and her criticism of Jewish denial at the beginning of the Holocaust.
