The interview describes her very young childhood in Darmstadt, Germany; and memories of the war years, including aerial bombing, hiding in the village bomb shelter, insufficient food and hunger, and the arrival of American troops in her village. Ms. Solomon recalls several moves her family made after the war ended, the destruction she witnessed, and her experience in a displaced persons camp. She discusses her immigration to the United States in 1946, returning to Germany in 1955, studying in Vienna in 1961, and describes her adult life in the United States.

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