"After 65 years, I have found the sister who I love," Simon Glasberg said Monday in heavily accented English, his eyes filling with tears. "I can't stop kissing her."<br><br><br><br>

My grandmother and her brother finally met again after being separated for 50 years, partly because my grandparents emigrated to the US in 1920, and partly because her brother lived in the Soviet Union and wasn't allowed to travel because he was Jewish.<br><br><br><br>
But 65 years? Wow!
