Videotape testimony of Greta Z., who was born in the Hague, Netherlands, in 1913. Mrs. Z. recalls the German occupation in 1940; imposition of anti-Semitic restrictions; round-up of her parents and brother in 1942 (they never returned); and deportation with her husband and two daughters to Westerbork in September 1943. She describes the family's transport to Bergen-Belsen in early 1944; daily routine in the camp, including her exemption from work because she was a woman with children; and visits by her husband (he was in a different barrack). She tells of the family's evacuation in April 1945; two weeks on a transport; liberation by the Russians at Shildau; taking over a private home there; repatriation via Leipzig to Holland in July 1945; and the family's emigration to the United States in 1953.
