PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman separated from her family by the Nazis is preparing for a reunion with a brother she hasn't seen in 66 years.Irene Famulak (FAM'-yoo-lak) was 17 and when the Nazis invaded the Ukrainian Catholic family's home in 1942. Famulak was sent to be a cook in Germany 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.

Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

My father was killed in WWII, actually no body was ever found and for many years my mom and his family held out hope that he was alive and being held prisoner somewhere. Never happened-
