He witnessed the flames of Kristallnacht in 1938 at age 12, seeing synagogues on fire, and soon fled Nazi tyranny. Several years after entering America, he would earn a personal victory over the Nazis, teaching democracy as a GI to German POWs. At age 92, however, he discovered that a miracle still awaited: one that was exactly 80 years in the making.
