Consists of a manuscript, 27 pages, entitled "Tilde's Story," consisting of a transcription of a 1977 oral testimony by Tilde Marchetti, which was transcribed in June 1995. In the testimony, Mrs. Marchetti describes her childhood in Sarajevo, her escape using fake documents to Split (Spalato), which was occupied by Italy, and the experience of being sent, with her parents, to Oderzo in northern Italy. She was able to escape capture and deportation with the help of her future husband, Ezio Marchetti, whom she met in Oderzo. Includes copies of a post-war letter telling Mrs. Marchetti's story, as well as a copy of the original manuscript, in Italian.
