The interviews describe Ms. Resseguie's childhood in Trier, Germany; the antisemitism that she and her family experienced after the Nazi Party rose to power; and the family's immigration to the United States in 1936 and 1937. Ms. Resseguie describes her education in the United States and her experiences with the Office of War Information during the war in London, and after the war in Germany. She discusses the nature of her work, including broadcasting in German from an American point of view; her intelligence work with blacklists and with rehabilitation of German women; and her discovery of a cachet of correspondence from the Nazi propaganda department, including that of Hans Fritszche, a propaganda minister who was tried for war crimes at the Nuremberg war crimes trials after the war. Ms. Resseguie discusses the fate of family members who did not emigrate; and her life after the war, including her marriage, education and career.
