Two Holocaust survivors who were friends during World War II were reunited thanks to their concentration camp tattoos. Shmuel Tzuk and Josef Shvyatovich met as teenagers in Poland’s Shanyov concentration camp in 1943. Within months they were shipped to Auschwitz and separated, each assuming the other had died. As it happened, both immigrated to Israel.
