Heartwarming War Photos You've Probably Never Seen Before
Edith Steiner, a Jewish woman who survived the Holocaust, and John Mackay, the Scottish Soldier that saved her. They were married July 17th, 1946, and will be celebrating their 73rd wedding anniversary this year!
A romance story for the ages if ever there were one. After rescuing a group of Jewish survivors from Auschwitz the Allied troops put together a dance in a local hall that was attended by both soldiers and survivors. Among the attendees were Edith, then known as Eci, and John Mackay. While the two never met while he was helping her out of the camp, they did spend the evening dancing.
While Edith grew up in Hungary, she and John continued seeing each other before marrying and building a life for themselves in Dundee, Scotland. In 2017 they celebrated 71 years together.
