This is what winning looks like: Holocaust survivor Dov and his wife Jutta holding their great-grandchild, Yannai Zohar. Originally from Czechoslovakia, Dov lost his entire family in the Holocaust. He and his father Armin were both Jewish partisans who fought in the underground resistance, but Armin was murdered when the Nazis burned down his house right in front of young Dov’s eyes. Dov’s two older sisters were killed in the Trawniki concentration camp along with their husbands. Jutta and her family left Berlin for Israel in 1933 right after Hitler came to power. Today, Jutta and Dov have a large family, including two children, six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
