Every war is awful. Besides the obvious consequences, war is emotionally painful and tears apart family members and loved ones.

World War II was an especially awful war. Over 60 million people were killed during the six years the war lasted, and even more people were either forced to flee their hometowns or were forcefully taken from them, away from the places and the people they had always known.

These two women had been best friends when they were younger, but the ravages of WWII forced them apart. They hadn’t seen each other for over 70 years, but they had never forgotten each other.

Finally, 71 years later, the two women were reunited. It may have been seven decades since they had seen each other, but the emotions were as fresh as if the war had only just ended.

Their poignant reunion will give you chills. Click below to watch it:
