Joy Break: Holocaust Survivors — Cousins — Reunite After 75 Years

By Nancy Flory Published on October 20, 2019

When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? They’re still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you.

Morris Sana and Simon Mairowitz just had an emotional reunion 75 years after surviving the Holocaust. The cousins hadn’t seen each other since 1943 or 1944. At that time, WWII was still going on. The then-children fled with their families separately to escape the Nazis. The two men were reunited after their daughters discovered they were related after taking a DNA test, reported Good Morning America.

The reunion was emotional, said Sana’s daughter, Carmela Ofer. “We were an emotional wreck, that is what we were.” Ofer helped reunite the cousins.

In a viral video, Sana, 87, and Mairowitz, 85, hugged. They said they waited 75 years for that moment.
