Man Saved by Schindler Finally Celebrates Bar Mitzvah

Arieh Sadeh, 84, who was among those saved from the Holocaust by Oskar Schindler, finally celebrated his bar mitzvah Tuesday, 71 years after his thirteenth birthday, at the local synagogue of his retirement village.
The ceremony, organized by Sadeh's family and the Ahuzat Beit Hakerem reitrement community, was a surprise to Sadeh, who only found out about the event when his wife and daughters informed him of its existence Tuesday morning.
