Raisel Roset, a Jewish displaced person (born circa 1896), discusses her husband's death in Russia; her deportation from Janów, Poland, to the ghetto in Czestochowa, Poland; her participation in forced labor in the "labor lager" in Czestochowa; how she acquired false identification papers top pass as an Aryan woman; being deported from Poland by the Germans to work in Germany; her recollections of an "action" in Czestochowa when only 4,000 of the original 50,000 Jews survived, and how the survivors of the action went to forced labor in munitions factories; her liberation from forced labor by the Americans; and how she made her way to the ORT school in Paris after liberation. At the end of the interview, David Boder conducts a Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) with Roset.
