This is a special story.

On the eve of Gerda Weissmann Kleins 21st birthday in May 1945, Gerda and Kurt Klein's love story began.

Gerda had spent the previous five and a half years enduring the antisemitic cruelty of N**i German occupation, surviving a ghetto and multiple labor camps. She was forced to perform hard labor and was later sent on a death march.

When she met Kurt that fateful day in 1945, she weighed 68 pounds, and her hair was white. She hadnt bathed in years.

Kurtan American soldier who escaped N**i Germany in 1937approached Gerda.

She felt compelled to tell him that she was Jewish. After a long pause he responded, so am I. Kurt asked to see the other ladies. It was a form of address we hadnt heard for six years, Gerda said later.

Then, Kurt did something seemingly unremarkablehe held the door for Gerda. To Gerda, that small act couldnt have meant more: In that gesture [he] restored me to humanity, she later reflected.

Gerda and Kurt stayed in touch over the following months, exchanging love letters. They married in 1946 in Paris and went on to live in the United States. They were married for nearly 56 years before Kurts death in 2002.

Decades later, when reflecting on their fateful meeting, Gerda said, He opened not only the door for me, but the door to my life and my future.

Gerda and Kurt are pictured here in Paris in 1946.
