Say, Dad, Grandpa is Not dead? Reuniting the Family After 68 Years

by Noah Isman

“… Many people gathered at the border-crossing but the Russians did not let them pass. While they were waiting, and before Israel had a chance to find and join his father and brother, a German air raid started and the crowd dispersed, some running into a nearby forest and some exploiting the disorder to cross into the Russian zone. In the commotion David and Henryk lost each other, never to meet again…”

Noah tells the story of how his family became separated during the Holocaust, how some were murdered by the Nazis while others, unbeknownst to each other, managed to survive, and how the families reconnected after almost seven decades.
