On May 10, 2016, a World War II U.S. Army veteran reunited with a Holocaust survivor whom he freed from a Nazi death camp 71 years ago.


Sid Shafner, 94, was honored at a Holocaust remembrance ceremony for his hand in liberating over 30,000 prisoners from the Dachau concentration camp in southern Germany in 1945.


CBS News reported that one of those prisoners, a now 90-year-old Marcel Levy, was just 17 years old when Shafner and his troop helped him escape from Dachau death camp in Germany.


"Everything I have today, all of my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, is due to you." Marcel Levy, Holocaust survivor, told Shafner.


During their moving reunion, Levy presented Shafner with a plaque that read, "You came like a warrior angel ... and carried me into the light."
