Holocaust survivor reunited with Polish rescuer

More than six decades after the end of World War II, the question still boggles the mind: How did they survive?

After all these years, even the heroes of the story find it hard to believe that they came out alive. It was 1942 in German-occupied Poland.

The Jews of Dubno, then located along the Polish border with Ukraine, were incarcerated in the city’s ghetto.

A Polish family of five offered to hide a Jewish family whom they knew from before the war in their home on the outskirts of the city if they felt their lives were in danger.
