Holocaust survivor meets her Polish savior after 60 years

By Haaretz Service

A Holocaust survivor from northern Israel was reunited for the first time in 60 years on Wednesday with the Polish woman who sheltered her during the Holocaust and saved her from the extermination of the Nazis.
Between 1942 and 1944, Wiktoria Sozanska (nee Jaworska) risked her own life, along with her widowed mother and five siblings, to secretly house Rozia Rothshild (nee Seifert) and her family in Poland.
Sixty years later, the two greeted each other at the JFK Airport, in a meeting arranged by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous. A Polish interpreter was on hand to facilitate the reunion.

“I cannot fully express how grateful I am to Wiktoria and her mother Anna. They opened their home and their hearts to me, risking their own lives in order to save me,” said Rothshild before the reunion.
