    Videotape testimony of Judy G., who was born in Kiskunmajsa, Hungary, in 1938. Mrs. G. tells of moving at five months to Budapest with her mother and sister when her father was drafted into a Hungarian labor battalion; being sent to her maternal grandparents in Jászalsószentgyörgy in 1943; returning to her mother after German occupation; deportation of her sister and paternal grandparents; her father's last visit; living with her mother and cousins; a doctor who placed the children in a Swiss Red Cross safe house after her cousin was taken; and her mother almost being killed. She relates reunion with her mother; hiding in a bunker with her mother's former employee and a retired Hungarian general; liberation; her mother's near rape by Soviet soldiers; being briefly kidnapped on the way to Jászalsószentgyörgy with her mother and an uncle; her "responsibility" as the only Jew in her grade school to set a positive example; return to Budapest when her mother remarried in 1948; postwar life in a religious household; her sense of loss at her father's death; and conveying to her children the lessons she has drawn from her experiences.
