Abstract:

Videotape testimony of Hilda G., who was born in 1925 in Berlin, Germany. She recalls moving to Amsterdam in 1928; German invasion in 1940; anti-Jewish restrictions; her brother hiding in Belgium; nurse's training in a children's center; helping the underground hide Jewish children; hiding to escape deportation; receiving a postcard her mother had thrown from a transport (she never saw her parents again); escaping with her brother via Maastricht to Brussels; posing as a non-Jewish nurse in the Ardennes, Gembloux, and Couvin; working for the resistance; her brother's arrest in 1944; moving with Patton's army and the Maquis to Brussels; and reunion with her brother. Mrs. G. describes entering Bergen-Belsen as part of a medical team; the massive clean-up and recovery; learning her friends Anne and Margot Frank perished there; the transition to a displaced persons camp; working with child survivors; renewed friendship with Otto Frank; marriage to a Swiss physician in 1947; being smuggled to Israel by the Hagannah in 1948 to provide medical assistance in the war; returning to Switzerland; and emigration to the United States. She emphasizes the absence of discrimination in her prewar life and help received from many non-Jews during the war.
