What a beautiful thing.
PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia woman separated from her family by the Nazis is preparing for a reunion with a brother she hasn’t seen in 66 years.
Irene Famulak was 17 and had six siblings when the Nazis invaded the Ukrainian Catholic family’s home in 1942. Famulak was sent to be a cook in Germany and never saw another family member again. But that’s about to change.
The Red Cross said the 83-year-old’s youngest brother Sevelud has turned up in Germany trying to trace his sister.
Irene Famulak’s daughter said the family will now plan a reunion.
