After 78 years, an elderly woman met her sister, who was lost during the Great Patriotic War, reports chelTV.
Rosalina and Yulia were forced to be separated in August 1942, after the bombing of Stalingrad. They were teenagers at that time. One of them was evacuated to Chelyabinsk, another one to Uzbekistan. All this time, the sisters tried to find out about each other’s fate and did not lose hope to meet.
Now after 78 years of searching their family is reunited. After a long-awaited meeting in Chelyabinsk, the sisters continue to communicate via video, and this summer Rosalina plans to go to visit her newly-found relatives in the Volga region.
