Videotape testimony of Frances S., who was born in Horochów, Poland in 1910. She describes her prewar family and religious life; her marriage in Yugoslavia in 1938; her studies at the University of Belgrade; and her arrest in 1938 before her stay was legalized. She recalls registering for emigration for fear of the Nazis; her flight, once she obtained her visa; her journey to Bombay via Greece, Iraq, and Karachi; and her forty-day trip to the United States, where she arrived in March 1941. She tells of her life here; her impressions of America's inertia with regard to receiving immigrants; her grandchildrens' awareness of the Holocaust; and the wartime deaths of her parents.
