    Videotape testimony of Adrienne K., who was born in Cluj, Romania in 1923. This testimony includes virtually all of the information in an earlier interview (HVT-199). Additional topics discussed include her pain at learning details of the killing process at Auschwitz, where her family perished; detailed descriptions of the work she did there in a munitions factory and the camp "hospital"; and hiding in the hospital while ill with typhus to avoid deportation to a death camp. She tells of her postwar position as administrator of a hospital in Waldenburg (Wałbrzych); her return to her home town; her marriage; the birth of her first child in 1947; and the completion of her medical education in 1958. She recounts emigrating to Israel in 1959; her move to the United States in 1961; and her career development and family changes since then. She also speaks of becoming more open about her wartime experiences and her upcoming visit to Auschwitz.
