Holocaust survivors reunited in Israel after 75 years

Two Holocaust survivors who were separated as children reunited in Israel after 75 years.

Morris Sana, 87, and his cousin and friend Simon Mairowitz, 85, were convinced that the other had been killed by the Nazis, according to People magazine.

They reconnected after their descendants found each other on Facebook. The men had escaped Romania separately following the German invasion in 1940.

Sana lives in Israel, in Raanana, and Mairowitz ended up in the United Kingdom.

Antisemitic graffiti found at Racine synagogue

Antisemitic graffiti was discovered at Racine’s Beth Israel Sinai Congregation on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, as board members arrived for a meeting in the afternoon.



“At first I was very angry that someone would do this,” said congregation President Joyce Placzkowski, who was first to notice the spray-painted swastika and the word “Jude,” along with three symbols that each appear to be a Nazi-style “S.”

Placzkowski said her anger soon shifted to sadness.

“It’s just a very sad feeling because of the baseless hatred that someone has for someone they don’t even know,” she said. “When you do nothing but exist … it’s very sad that someone can have that kind of hatred in their body.”
