Survivors Point to their Photo

Tova Friedman, Sarah Ludwig, and Mike Bornstein are three of the children pictured in an iconic photograph taken by a Soviet soldier during the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The children can be seen showing the numbers tattooed on their arms. Here the three survivors can be seen holding that image together 72 years later in America (2017). While they did not know each other during the war, all three emigrated to the U.S. and eventually settled in New Jersey, not far from each other. Tova, who first learned of the photo’s existence from a movie shown at Yad Vashem, said she always wondered who the other children were and what had happened to them. More than 70 years later, she got her answer!
