2 siblings reunited after being separated in Holocaust
“After 65 years, in which each of them thought their sibling had perished in the Holocaust, and after they searched for each other in Israel and abroad, Hilda Shelik (75) and her brother Simon Glasberg (83) met Monday. With the help of Yad Vashem’s website, the two siblings’ grandchildren discovered that family members had indeed survived the Holocaust, even though they had previously been led to believe otherwise.
“I am happy today. All the years that passed I didn’t believe my family survived. Even when my grandchildren told me they had survived, I didn’t believe it. Today I am happy,” said Hilda.
Their older brother, Karol Weiner, thought that Hilda perished in the Holocaust, and therefore submit a Page of Testimony to Yad Vashem in 1999 in Hilda’s name stating such. About a month and a half ago, her grandchildren found the Page of Testimony written by Hilda’s brother. Karol passed away the same year, without knowing that thanks to him, his siblings found Hilda in Israel.”
