Interview covers life experiences from before WWII in Poland and through her entire experience in the Holocaust. Miriam and her two sisters were the only surviving members of their family. After the war they tried to go home, stopping at a town 30km away and sensing the hostility toward them they left. Later the same evening there was a pogrom where 60 young Jewish survivors were murdered. They were too afraid to go home after that and left for Czech.
