90-year-old Marsha Kreuzman is a Holocaust survivor who was near death when her concentration camp was liberated by American soldiers in 1945.
And for several decades, she's been searching for those soldiers to say thank you. But until recently, she hadn't been able to find any who were still alive.
Well, that changed this past October. She randomly saw an anniversary announcement in her local paper for 93-year-old Joe Barbella and his wife Anne . . . which noted that Joe had helped liberate Marsha's camp.
It turns out Marsha and Joe both live in New Jersey, and at one point even lived in the same CITY.
They've become good friends over the past three months, and Marsha's still trying to show her gratitude . . . even though it's been almost 70 years since Joe helped rescue her. In fact, she even showed up to his house with a Christmas present this year.
