Holocaust survivor Hank Brodt on Wednesday night sang "Vi Ahin Zol Ich Geyn?" ("Where shall I go?") with IDF Chief Cantor Shai Abramson.

The two sang together at the Philharmonic House of Krakow, during the annual March of the Living Ceremony.

Brodt had been in five Nazi Concentration camps, including Plashov, Matthausen and Ebensee. He was liberated from Ebensee on May 6, 1945.

He has attended nine March of the Living events.

Brodt sang Oyfn Pripetshik, a song in memory of the murdered 1,500,000 children who died at the Warsaw orphanage run by Janucz Korchak,

At Birkenau in 2007, Hank lit one of the six memorial torches in memory of the numerous members of this family who had been murdered by the Nazis. Shortly thereafter, Hank discovered his brother’s family who lived in Israel.

Hank's brother Simcha died in 1986. In the 1990s, Simcha’s two sons, along with their mother, immigrated to Israel. Today, both of Hank’s nephews have families of their own.

The reunification of Hank Brodt with his family is nothing less than a modern miracle, for which he and all those who love him are indeed grateful.
