An emotional reunion of 2 Belgians that escaped the Shoah

There was no little emotion when Simon Gronowski and Alice Gerstel met at the Holocaust Museum in the American city of Los Angeles. The childhood friends had both escaped the Shoah and hadn’t seen each other for 76 years. During the war Alice’s family was able to flee the Nazi occupation of Belgium.
