Kentucky plays a small, heartwarming part in a recent New York Times historic love story.
David Wisnia and Helen Spitzer fell in love at Auschwitz during the Holocaust. They vowed to find each other. It took them 72 years.
They had, by that time, married others, but their story is a gripping testament to survival. One intense moment involved Wisnia knocking out a Nazi guard with a shovel. He escaped into the woods, hiding until he heard an approaching army. It was the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell, Kentucky. From that moment on, he considered himself “110 percent American.”
