90 Year Old Holocaust Survivor, Gary Lenzner

I first posted this heart warming story about Gary Lenzner on January 26, 2012 and I see he has a Facebook page here  and I believe, praise God, he is still living today.

Hat Tip: My wonderful Aunt Carla from St. Louis, a great American patriot and supporter of Israel.

She e-mailed me this heart wrenching video of this courageous man's story surviving such horrific, evil inhumanity.  Thank God for the wonderful ending of this man's survival and his loving family getting to share their hearts with him.  You will be riveted by this video that will move you in a wide range of emotions.

From the description by Josh Friedman on his You tube video, "This is the amazing story of holocaust survivor Gary Lenzner who at the age of 85 years old went skydiving with this Grandson, Bryan Wasserman, to prove to Hitler that he had survived despite living as a homeless teen in Berlin and in concentration camps for over four years."

Michael, that moved me 2 tears. My Father fought in Battle of the Bulge. An older soldier, w/ 2 litte one's @ home. And his Father being born in Germany. He came home & had 1 more son shortly after the war & then had me in 1954. My Mom passed in her sleep at the young age of 53, so my older Daddy raised me. Very quiet good man, but now I recall seeing the movie Patton w/ him & him weeping. Now I see why. Anti-Semitism is rising rapidly as well as Christians being persecuted all over the world. Our press is full of propoganda, half truths, sugar coating and it seems history is repeating itself. Although, this time I feel the USA might not survive. Thank You for sharing my friend. God Speed, Krissy

Thank you for sharing my grandfather's story again. He is currently still alive and well. We celebrated his 90th birthday back in July of this year. He is truly a hero in my eyes and I thank my lucky stars everyday to have him still in my life.

Have a great day!

Bryan Wasserman
