Interview with liberated female internee Georgette Kramer from the Los Banos camp in Manila
Manila Philippines Date:1945, March 9 Duration:1 min 36 sec Sound:Yes
Interview in Manila with freed female internee Georgette Kramer (or Cramer) from the Japanese operated Los Baños internment camp (liberated 13 days before the interview). A microphone is set on a tripod stand for the interview. Ms. Kramer relates how she was wounded by a stray Japanese bullet during the February 23, 1945 liberation operation. During the firefight with Allied forces a bullet went through her mother's arm, through Ms. Kramer's abdominal wall, and into her friend's hand. Wounded, they were rushed to a tank. She says one other internee was also shot through the hip. When asked what she wants to do now that she is free she says she is not sure. A small child (presumably Ms. Kramer's daughter) runs up to the camera and says she wants to say something too. The interviewer lifts up the child in his arms. The girl says she wants to go to the United States.
