Hanna D. Holocaust testimony (HVT-177) [videorecording] / interviewed by Dori Laub, Laurel Vlock, and Nanette Auerhahn, February 18, 1980.
New Haven, Conn. : Holocaust Survivors Film Project, 1980.
Videotape testimony of Hanna D., who was born in northern Bohemia in 1928 and moved to Prague in 1938. Mrs. D.'s mother was Jewish and her father was a German Catholic, and Mrs. D. was raised as a Catholic. She describes her family's move to Prague when her father was dismissed from his civil service job for refusing to divorce his Jewish wife; her education; mistreatment by a Nazi teacher (though most Czechs were kind to her); her vivid recollections of incidents of abuse and abandonment of Jews from the rise of Nazism through the deportations; and her forced labor with other "half-castes" in a munitions factory. She tells of the death of her mother in 1943 when, because she was Jewish, she was unable to obtain medical assistance, and of the fate of her mother's relatives. Mrs. D. also speaks of her father's deportation to Germany as an alien at the end of the war; her marriage in Prague to a man also from a mixed marriage; their emigration to the United States; the untimely death of her father; and a postwar visit to Theresienstadt.
