Kurt and Edith Leuchter from the Sun Valley East community in southern Palm Beach County have reached a significant milestone in their relationship. This unique couple survived the holocaust, and have been married for 70 years.
Their story is one of love in the face of resistance. After overcoming one of the worst human atrocities, they built a long-lasting love and happy family.
“We’re Holocaust survivors, I fought in the French Resistance,” Kurt Leuchter told Fox 29.
Kurt was born in Austria and Edith in Germany. They met in 1943 at an orphanage in France after their families were sent to concentration camps.
Neighbours made signs and held balloons to honour the couple on their special day, according to Fox 29.
