Childhood Friends Separated by Holocaust Reunite 75 Years Later

1

Chaya Levy, 91, and Esther Sheinberg, 88, were childhood friends who grew up in the same Transylvanian village of Beclean, in what was then Hungary and is now Romania, before being deported to Auschwitz, Yisroel Hayom reports.

Until Sunday, neither suspected the other had survived the Holocaust.

When their daughters were introduced through a mutual friend, they were surprised to discover that both their mothers had grown up in the same village.

When the daughters later told their mothers the story, Levy and Sheinberg immediately recognized the other’s name.
