Holocaust survivor Ben Lesser was born in Krakow, Poland in 1928. During the war, he survived multiple ghettos, concentration camps, a death march from Auschwitz to Buchenwald, and a death train to Dachau. Shortly after making his way to the United States, Ben met the beautiful Jean Singer. The couple married on June 17, 1950 and have raised a beautiful family. The family is currently separated due to the pandemic, but that didn’t stop them from making Ben and Jean’s 70th anniversary extra special. They surprised the happy couple by recreating their first date – a night at the movies to see Marlena Dietrich in Golden Earrings. #MazalTov to Ben and Jean!
