    Videotape testimony of Giorgina V., who was born in Turin, Italy in 1926. Mrs. V. describes her family life; moving to Milan, where her grandparents lived, in 1936; attending Hebrew school; the beginning of persecution in 1938; attending public school which had a Catholic emphasis; being barred from that school; her return to Hebrew school; and her happy memories of that time. She recalls Italy's entry into the war in 1940; moving back to Turin; schools closing; being sent to Rome, where she lived with a converted uncle and aunt, to finish high school; German occupation of Turin; and moving to Piea, a small town where they lived under false papers. She tells of weekly searches by the Germans; deportation of her uncle; living with Christians and attending church; the end of the war in 1945; the influx of refugees to Italy; and her marriage and emigration to the United States. Other topics include the fate of the Italian Jews; celebration of Jewish holidays in Italy; and aid given to the Jews by the Italian people during the war.
