Jewish Holocaust Survivor Reunited with Her Roman Catholic Savior after 70 Years

It’s always nice to hear about these kind of stories, I wonder how many people today would help others knowing they could be shot for doing so.


Wonderful, heartwarming story, and fortunately not unique. But also sad, in a way, since it makes one aware that it often takes a tragedy such as the Holocaust for people to realize they ARE their brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.


What a wonderful story of survival and helping others in dire circumstances at the risk of your own life!~ May both families be abundantly blessed.
