Twin brothers, George Skrzynecky and Lucjan Poznanski, were separated shortly after birth following World War II. After nearly seven decades, the Red Cross was able to reconnect them. Then, late this summer, they were able to reunite in Poland. Their story highlights how easily families are separated by crisis, the pain caused by this separation, and the relief and joy experienced when reconnection occurs. In the video below, George and Lucjan meet for the first time in 68 years.
