Abstract Videotape testimony of Eva S., who was born in Trenc?i?n, Czechoslovakia (presently Slovakia) in 1935. She recounts attending a Jewish school for one grade; her family's exemption from deportation due to her father's dental practice; conversion with her parents by an evangelical priest; a patient who was in the Hlinka guard warning them they would be deported the next day; staying with non-Jewish neighbors, who then led them to partisan territory; staying with an evangelical priest in l?ubietova?, who offered to save her; her parents insistence that they stay together; her father working for the partisans in Banska? Bystrica as a dentist/doctor; retreating to the Tatra Mountains, then to Povrazni?k; living in a tent; difficulties obtaining food and water; her father wanting to surrender; encountering a non-Jewish couple who regularly brought them food; a man warning them of Germans approaching and leading them to another partisan unit that assisted them building a bunker in a forest; her father providing medical care to the partisans; traveling to Detva, which had already been liberated; crossing a field of corpses en route; living in Kos?ice until Trenc?i?n was liberated; returning home; neighbors returning their possessions; learning many relatives did not survive; continuing her education; the births of two brothers; and difficulties with the Communist regime starting in 1948. Ms. S. notes feeling safe with the partisans, and her family continuing to attend the evangelical church.
