Decades after World War II, an 83-year-old Holocaust survivor is donating a million dollars to organizations that help wounded American veterans. Paris native Bernard Darty was only a child then and he spent most of the war hiding from the Nazis and says this donation is his way of thanking the American soldiers who helped rescue him so long ago.
Darty says he vividly remembers the arrival of American troops who landed in Normandy to free them in June 1944. He says without them, he and his family wouldn’t have survived, so the gratitude he feels “for those men is beyond words.”
"Even though more than 70 years have passed since my rescue, it’s not too late to give back," Darty says. "That’s a lesson I hope the next generation recognizes, because it’s all too easy to let procrastination give way to inaction. But action is what brings hope to those who need it."
