Pa. Woman, Brother Separated by Nazis to Reconnect

Updated: 5/15/2008


A Holocaust survivor who lives in Philadelphia is preparing for a reunion with a brother she hasn't seen in 66 years.

Irene Famulak (FAM'-yoo-lak) was 17 and had six siblings when the Nazis invaded their home in Ukraine in 1942. She was taken to a concentration camp and never saw another family member again. But that's about to change.

The Red Cross says the 83-year-old's youngest brother Sevelud (SEV'-eh-lood) has turned up in Germany trying to trace his sister.

Irene Famulak's daughter says the family will now plan a reunion.
