Holocaust survivor reunited with US Army soldier who liberated her from NAZI death camp

A Jewish woman saved nearly 70 years ago from a Nazi concentration camp has finally met the man that set her free.

Marsha Kreuzman, 90, and living in New Jersey, never forgot the US Army liberated her in 1945 from Mauthausen, in Austria, and two months ago found one of her liberators by chance – an anniversary notice.

The notice published in the Newark Star-Ledger celebrated Joe and Anne Barbellas 65th wedding anniversary – Joe Barbella’s unit, the 11th Armored Division liberated Mauthausen.

My fear in reading this is that the lessons learned are being forgotten. My daughter had a holocaust survivor speak to her class, but many more don't. Given the decreasing number of survivors (and liberators), the events are becoming more and more remote.
