Description:
Abstract Videotape testimony of Mari F., who was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1932. She recalls a comfortable childhood; few changes after Hungary's alliance with Germany following the outbreak of war; her parents' indecision regarding emigration; Nazi occupation in 1944; expulsion from school in April; her father's arrest and release; her mother's arrest and death from exhaustion; her father's reluctance to remain in their home marked by the yellow star; their move to a safe house; being placed by her father in a Jewish orphanage; escaping when the police came; locating her family with help from non-Jewish friends; remaining with them in hiding; liberation; and returning to a Swiss protected house from which they retrieved their belongings. Mrs F. recounts placement in a children's home in Szeged, then on a farm; returning to her father in Budapest; attending school; her father's emigration to Israel; living in a displaced persons camp in Austria; marriage to a survivor; and emigration to United States. She speaks of her children and agreeing with her sister not to discuss the war years.
