POTUS Reunites Holocaust Survivor with the American Soldier Who Liberated Him in Touching SOTU Moment
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Donald Trump took a moment to honor both a Holocaust survivor in the audience and the American soldier and World War II veteran who helped free him.
“Joshua Kaufman was a inmate at Dachau,” the president introduced him. “He remembers watching through a hole in the wall of a cattle car as American soldiers rolled in with tanks.”
President Trump went on to share how Kaufman told him, “The American soldiers were proof that God exists, and they came down from the sky.”
“I began this evening by honoring three soldiers who fought on D-Day in the second World War,” he continued before revealing an unexpected surprise. “One of them was Herman Zeitchik. But there is more to Herman’s story. A year after he stormed the beaches of Normandy, Herman was one of those American soldiers who helped liberate Dachau.”
“He was one of the Americans who helped rescue Joshua from that hell on Earth,” President Trump said. “Almost 75 years later, Herman and Joshua are both together in the gallery tonight — seated side-by-side, here in the home of American freedom. Herman and Joshua, your presence this evening is very much appreciated. Thank you very much.”
Earlier in his address, the president gave a shout out to another Holocaust survivor, Judah Samet, who also survived the recent Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
