Daughter visits rescuer in Belgium

Daughter visits rescuer in BelgiumBALTIMORE — Tanya Klein grew up knowing that her mother, Tova Silverstein (nee Lowenbraun), had survived the Holocaust in hiding in her native Belgium. Mom, however, shared few details — only her rescuer’s surname, Larose, and the name of the village, Villers-Poterie.

Last week the Baltimore woman took another significant step: applying to Yad Vashem, Israel’s...
