One of the most touching moments from last night’s State of the Union address came when President Trump introduced Holocaust survivor, Joshua Kaufman and American soldier Herman Zeitchik.
During World War II, Kaufman had been a prisoner at Dachau Concentration Camp in Germany. The President said Kaufman “remembers watching through a hole in the wall of a cattle car as American soldiers rolled in with tanks. ‘To me,’ Joshua recalls, ‘the American soldiers were proof that God exists, and they came down from the sky.'”
Zeitchik stormed the beaches of Normandy and had eventually helped liberate Dachau.
Trump said Zeitchik “was one of the Americans who helped rescue Joshua from that hell on earth. Almost 75 years later, Herman and Joshua are both together in the gallery tonight — seated side-by-side, here in the home of American freedom. Herman and Joshua: your presence this evening honors and uplifts our entire Nation.”
