A year and a half ago, we told you about the extraordinary and heartbreaking story of a mother and toddler who were separated at Auschwitz, never to see each other again — and whose daughters found each other thanks to a MyHeritage DNA test.

We are delighted to share that MyHeritage recently facilitated their first in-person reunion as a wonderful surprise for Eva’s sisters, Dena and Jean, in the U.S.

This story was featured in the Washington Post, the New York Post, the Daily Mail, as well as many media outlets in many languages across the world.

The incredible discovery they made in 2020 coincided with the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, which made it impossible for the newfound family members to meet. They spoke on Zoom every two weeks after finding each other, but they didn’t know when they would be able to see each other in person.

When restrictions on traveling to the U.S. from the U.K. were finally lifted, Clare took the first opportunity to fly to visit her aunts — but to make their reunion extra special, she kept her trip a secret and showed up on their doorstep unannounced!
