There are no happy endings to the Holocaust, but this story comes close.

Thanks to the efforts of a group of Midwestern eighth graders, a pair of best friends—both 87—who escaped Germany together and hadn’t seen or heard from each other in 73 years have been reunited. Their lives are the lead story on a new show on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), “Lost & Found,” that premieres next week.
