Dennise Nahmias (née Angel), born in 1924 in Saloniki (Thessalonike), Greece, describes how her brother and father moved to Athens, Greece in 1941 in order to advance their manufacturing business; the German occupation in April 1941; how their house was requisitioned by a German officer and they were evicted; how she and her mother were allowed to travel to Athens; going into hiding with her family when Athens fell into German hands; how they scattered and lived with three different Gentile Greek families, including a former landlord of theirs, a lawyer (who also housed other Jews as well as communists and soldiers), and an employee of the French Academy; how all of her family survived in hiding until the end of the war; and how she eventually married another survivor, Albert Joseph Nahmias.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
