"When last they saw each other, cousins Leon Schagrin and Lemel Leo Adler were teens who had just a chance meeting of a few minutes as they were carted off by the Nazis to a concentration camp at Auschwitz. When the moment passed, they were taken to separate parts of the facility and never saw each other again.
Until now. On Sunday afternoon, Mr Schagri, 85, and Mr Adler, 89, met for the first time since their moments together in the Monowitz-Buna sub-camp in Poland seven decades ago. Neither even knew the other had survived the horrors of the Nazi extermination machine.
But by divine hand or twist of fate, the two Polish immigrants, who led separate, successful lives after coming to America, retired less than 20 miles apart in Broward County, Florida."
