Life gives you many surprises, when, where, and how, we don’t know.
Sometimes, we are speechless what we see or experience in our life.
For 75 years, Morris Sana thought that his cousin and best friend Simon Mairowitz was dead. But the 87-year-old Sana and 85-year-old Mairowitz reunited and cried with joy when they met in Israel.
The cousins were best friends before the Nazis invaded Romania in 1940, forcing both of their respective families to flee the country separately.
After their separation, Sana and Mairowitz grew up believing that the other died in a concentration camp in Europe during World War II.(The U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum estimates at least 6 million Jewish men, women and children were killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust.
After several decades, Sana’s niece and daughter connected with relatives on Facebook, leading to Sana and Mairowitz’s reunion in Tel Aviv.
Sana and Mairowitz’s emotions come out as they walk towards each other, holding out their arms and hug.
“Good to see you,” Sana, who lives in Ra’anana, Israel, tells his long-lost buddy.
“Good to see you too after all these years,” says Mairowitz, holding Sana’s face in his hands as both men begin to cry. “Seventy-five years you waited.”
“I know it’s a long time,” continues Mairowitz, who now lives in the U.K. “We’ve got each other now. And we can see each other.”
Sana tells Mairowitz that he never forgot him and often think about him after they were separated. “I imagine you when you were a little boy,” he says.
“You remember, don’t you?” Mairowitz says. “I can’t remember that.”
“I’m glad to see you,” Sana says again.
“So am I,” replies Mairowitz. “Very, very glad.”
This is so touching, and we can say that “Yes, miracles happen!”
