Description:
Abstract Videotape testimony of Tushia Z., who was born in Krako?w, Poland in 1925. She describes her assimilated childhood; vacationing in Zakopane in summer 1939; German invasion; street killings of Jews; her mother's murder in November 1939; her father sending her to another city; a mass killing; returning to Krako?w; living with her father and brother in the ghetto; transfer to P?aszo?w when the ghetto was liquidated; working in Oskar Schindler's factory; benign conditions compared to P?aszo?w; deportation to Birkenau; transfer to Auschwitz; a death march to Buchenwald; forced labor at Hasag-Leipzig; transfer to Ravensbru?ck; abandonment by the guards in a forest; liberation by United States troops; abusive behavior by Soviet troops; returning to Krako?w; a futile search for relatives; and assistance from nuns and her father's friends. Mrs. Z. recalls attending school; marriage to a Jew; recurring nightmares; her husband's reluctance for her to share her experiences with him or their son; her son's exposure to antisemitic epithets; having no regrets concerning their decision to remain in Poland; and attempting to organize a memorial at P?aszo?w. She notes that no one can understand or imagine her life who has not had similar experiences and her pain at not knowing her father's or brother's fate.
