Friendships are often fostered by similarities in upbringing, hardships and empathy. The friendship between the late Felix Goldberg and David Miller was forged in the horror of German Nazi coal mines and concentration camps during World War II and blossomed in a post-war  double wedding when they married a pair of sisters, Bluma and Cela. Theirs was a lifelong bond that can never be broken.

Felix and Bluma Goldberg and David and Cella Miller were bound by their experiences as European Jews and Holocaust survivors. While all four have passed, their families are determined to share their stories so the world would never again commit such atrocities. 

Felix and David met at Auschwitz working in a coal mine. Towards the end of the war, the two survived one of the Nazi’s infamous death marches by holding one another’s hand before the two were liberated.

Cela and Bluma, the teenage daughters of the late Haskell and Rachel Tishgarten, were sent to hide in the wood  by their family when their small town in Poland was invaded by the Nazis. The two ended up being found, worked in a German Nazi munitions plant and were eventually sent to Bergen-Belsen. As others died around them, the  two survived starvation and typhus while staying together.
