Holocaust pair reunion joy

TWO sisters who each feared the other was killed during the Holocaust have been reunited — after more than 61 years.

Klara Blaier, 81, and Hannah Katz, 78, moved to Israel in 1948, each unaware that the other had survived the Nazi murder of six million Jews during the Second World War.

But when their family recently began searching on an Internet database they discovered the sisters had been living just 85 miles apart.

Yaari said the two had last seen each other in 1944, after their parents sent them from their home in the former Czechoslovakia to live with relatives.
