74 Years After Going Missing In WWII, Jewish US Soldier Gets Kevura


A Jewish-American soldier from World War II who was listed as missing for more than 70 years finally got a proper kevura after his remains were discovered and returned to his family.

Staff Sgt. David Rosenkrantz was killed at the age of 28 during Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands. His remains were recovered and identified in March, near the farm where he was killed, by a young boy who dedicates his time identifying soldiers.

Rosenkrantz was buried on Friday at the Riverside National Cemetery, where four of his brothers also are buried, in a funeral 74 years after his death, with more than 30 of his relatives, including nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews, and their children, attended the funeral, according to the Times.
