Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.438.46 | RG Number: RG-50.688.0046

Agnesa Baďurová, born in 1923 in Považský Chlmec, a neighborhood in the city of Žilina, Slovakia, describes going to a vocational school and to an apprenticeship in Žilina; living on Bratislavská street in Žilina; the new Slovak political regime not being a bad time for her family because they had a small farm with three cows and her father worked for a railway company and they could travel with free tickets; how her Jewish classmates in middle school stopped coming to school one day; seeing Jewish people being taken to a railway station; a shooting range in Považský Chlmec where she saw people being shot; sales of Jewish possessions such as clothes, which she wouldn’t touch because of concern about skin disease; people being chased like cattle from a Maccabi building down the roads and having to walk in rows of four to the train tracks to be loaded onto a train; seeing many shootings at the shooting range; after the war, someone came to ask about her experiences and being too afraid to talk because of her fears of being denounced.

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