WWII Vets and Holocaust Survivors Share The Stage 70 Years After Liberation

Seventy years after escaping death, a group of holocaust survivors got together over the weekend in Dallas with military veterans. The Daughters of World War II, an organization dedicated to honoring World War II Veterans, brought together these men and women for the 70th Anniversary of the U.S. and Allied Armed Forces victory over Nazi Germany.

Seventy years ago, a war brought two unlikely groups of people together.

Young, healthy American soldiers and famished Jewish prisoners. 

Those Veterans of World War II and Jewish Holocaust survivors shared the stage on Sunday at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas.
