Shoshana Ovitz is a Holocaust survivor who lives in Israel and who recently celebrated her 104th birthday in a very memorable way.

To celebrate the milestone, Ovitz’s family gathered together the majority of her direct descendants, which they estimated at an astounding 400 people.

The large group of grandchildren and other descendants came together, in accordance with Ovitz’s wishes, at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.  The Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, is a sacred holy site in the Jewish faith.

According to Ovitz’s granddaughter Panini Friedman described the mega-reunion as difficult to pull off since it required coordination between hundreds of Ovitz’s children, grandchildren, and other relatives.

“Everyone was there with tears in their eyes,” said Friedman.  “It was very emotional.”

According to journalist Avital Chizhik Goldschmidt, Ovitz survived the Auschwitz concentration camp, one of the most notorious death camps of the Holocaust, where she also lost her mother.

After surviving the Holocaust Ovitz met her husband while searching for family members and later moved to Israel. The enormous gathering is proof of an incredible legacy of fruitfulness and survival.
