    Videotape testimony of Anton and Marion P., who served in the administration of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) Jewish displaced persons camps in Germany in 1945-1947. Mrs. P. reflects on her wartime life in Holland and the subtle effect of antisemitic propaganda on even anti-Nazi audiences; serving as translator in a postwar trial of fourteen Dutch Nazis in Wolfratshausen; being sent by UNRRA as a welfare officer to a Jewish displaced persons camp at Föhrenwald; learning Yiddish to better communicate with refugees; and the difficulties of dealing with varied interest groups among the displaced persons. Both she and Mr. P. recount examples from their experiences at Windsheim of politicization and the influence of Zionist, Orthodox and communist groups; difficulties in obtaining appropriate foodstuffs and supplies; maintainance of camp discipline; the problem of distribution of scarce camp jobs to displaced persons; entertainment; and the misunderstandings caused by well-intentioned but ignorant camp staff.
