Rena Zabielak (née Litwak), born March 23, 1924 in Warsaw, Poland, discusses her experiences during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising; her escape from the ghetto; and her experiences while living in hiding under false papers.
Tauba Biber (née Trompeter), born in 1925 in Mielec, Poland, describes her deportation to the Kraków ghetto with her sister; their transfer to Plaszow; their subsequent transfer to Auschwitz in 1943; being sent later to Bergen-Belsen, where she was liberated; her experiences in the camps and during the postwar period.
Both women discuss the psychological impact of their experiences during the war and other people's refusal to listen to their personal histories.

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