On January 27, 1945, Soviet troops freed Europe from the reign of terror that the German regime established in its empire of barbarism.
After 75 years, two Jewish cousins persecuted for the ignominy of the Third Reich who believed they were dead, were finally able to meet in a touching hug that has broken the hearts of millions of followers on social networks, through a video posted by the family of the elderly.
Morris Sana and Simon Mairowitz were born in Romania
Our protagonists, Morris Sana and Simon Mairowitz , two Romanians who, in addition to cousins are great childhood friends, had to be separated by the Romanian government alliance to the Nazi cause, in 1940, motivating both families to leave the country. They would never see each other again.
The old comrades believed that the other had lost his life at the hands of those in charge of the concentration camps, so they had no hope of meeting again. But oh surprise! The miracle happened. The cousins were alive.
Next, relatives of Mairowitz managed to arrange the touching meeting and Simon traveled from the United Kingdom to Israel to meet his dear friend, who has been living in the city of Tel Aviv for several years.
In the video posted by Leetal Ofer , Sana’s granddaughter, the grandfather can be seen entering a hotel room and walking towards her cousin.
“I’m glad to see you. Seventy-five years waiting.
It’s a long time, but now we have each other, ”said Sana while Mairowitz, in a gesture of affection, holds with her hands the face of her friend she thought was dead.
Morris Sana, 87, is two years older than his cousin, to whom he said with sweetness that, despite the passage of time, he still remembers him as a little boy who ran along with him through the cobbled streets of his hometown.
For its part, the excited granddaughter and architect of the great reunion, wrote some heartfelt words that have been disseminated by several international media:
“This is one of the most moving things I’ve seen in my life and I would love to share it with you.
To make a long story short,
my grandfather could not find his cousin and best friend after the Holocaust and was sure he had been killed in the concentration camps.
I found it and we could arrange for the cousins to meet again. The war tore thousands of families apart. That is why bringing them together in Israel has been such a magical thing, ”the message reads.
In that reciprocal correspondence, the communion between the two cousins and friends deepened towards the most personal of each one, showing that the true friendship and complicity of a child resists any obstacle , even the passage of time, and is an expression of a sincere relationship , genuine and for a lifetime.
