El emocionante momento en el que un sobreviviente del Holocausto puede volver a su casa tras vencer al coronavirus

Sobreviviente del Holocausto vence al COVID-19
Sobreviviente del Holocausto vence al COVID-19

Jack Holzberg fue diagnosticado con COVID-19 hace aproximadamente dos semanas y fue tratado en el centro médico Weill Cornell Medicine. Después de aproximadamente una semana en el hospital, lo transfirieron a un retiro de ancianos de Nueva Jersey y lo mantuvieron en cuarentena hasta que los médicos dijeron que estaba lo suficientemente bien como para irse a casa.

“Cuando nos enteramos del diagnóstico, todos estábamos asustados, pero esto fue un milagro”, afirmó su nieta, Erica Wasserman.

Después de su salida del retiro, Holzberg regresó a su casa en la localidad de Forest Hills, en Nueva York, hogar que comparte con su esposa de 68 años, Betty.

“Esta fue su primera vez separados por tanto tiempo. Ambos estaban muy felices de reunirnos hoy”, expresó Wasserman. “Estoy feliz de que puedan pasar el resto de esto juntos”.

La pareja tiene dos hijos, cuatro nietos y cinco bisnietos. El sexagésimo aniversario de la liberación de Holzberg del campo de concentración de Mauthausen en Austria será el 6 de mayo.

“Estamos tan agradecidos de que esté de camino a casa”, agregó. “Fue un día emotivo para todos”.

“Para él, que haya sobrevivido esto, es porque el de arriba lo estaba cuidando”, aseveró su hijo Marc. “Duro como una piedra. Pasó por muchas cosas. Mi padre pasó por muchas cosas en su tiempo. Él ha sido bendecido. Siente todos los días cuando se despierta que hay un hermoso día afuera y está muy agradecido”, agregó.

Holzberg era un adolescente en Polonia cuando estalló la Segunda Guerra Mundial y pasó gran parte del Holocausto en varios campos de concentración. Perdió a la mayoría de su familia en el genocidio nazi y, después de la guerra, emigró con un hermano sobreviviente a Nueva York, donde aprendió inglés y construyó un exitoso negocio de ropa en Manhattan.
