    Videotape testimony of Judith S., who was born in Szeged, Hungary, in 1929, and raised in nearby Kiskundorozsma. Mrs. S. recalls tacit and overt antisemitism in pre-occupation Hungary; her family's deportation to Szeged in June 1944; a Christian family that offered to hide her; priests who offered conversion to detainees; transport with her family to Strasshof; camp living conditions; and forced labor at several sites, including a farm near Pravice, a sugar mill in Hrus̆ovany, and digging tank traps. She tells of the family's escape from a death march during a Soviet attack; hiding; liberation; returning to Szeged; the death of her father in spring 1946; marriage; emigration to the United States in 1968; and the effects of her experience on her personal philosophical outlook in which she successively became an atheist, a zionist, a communist, and finally, "just a person."
