I spent 3 1/2 hours last night listening to Amon Goeth's (Schindler's List) former slave talk...

...about her life as his slave.

(I have recently renewed study of this period because of am better understanding, because of our Nazi "President" how it happened.)

It was an interview as part of USC's Shoah project, which features living history videos. The video is the testimony of Helena Jonas Rosenzweig, one of "Schlinder's Jews," who actually lived in Goeth's house.

She was an articulate speaker with such overwhelming depth of humanity; she died in 2018, and interviewed when she was 71.

In the movie, Schinder's List, she was represented by a composite character, as she was one of two housekeeping slaves held by the vicious camp commandment, the war criminal Amon Goethe, who was executed by the Poles in 1946.

Zero to the start: The interview begins a few seconds after the test pattern.
